Description

Join us in the Main Theater of The Dreamland this summer for a series of classic concert films, many legendary and some just a really good time! Come with friends, get your beer, wine and mixed drinks at concessions and relive some of these incredible performances. Each booking is ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Director Jonathan Demme captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983. The band's frontman, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band's hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit.
