Stop Making Sense - Free Outdoor Movie at 33 Hawley


Stop Making Sense film screening
Wednesday, July 19th - 8:00pm (or sundown)
33 Hawley Street, Northampton
Rain Date - Friday July 21st.

The Northampton Community Arts Trust will be one of many locations throughout the country celebrating the late Jonathan Demme by screening his seminal film of the Talking Heads in concert. Shot over three performances in LA in December 1983, Demme's creative genius, wall-to-wall music, beautiful cinematography, the legendary "Big Suit" and the band's explosive energy makes this film an exhilarating and exciting event. This is definitely a film you can dance to.

“…not one of the countless concerts filmed in the years since ever captured a band's energy quite like Jonathan Demme did in this film.” – Wired

Bring a blanket to sit on or a low chair to lounge in, and take the opportunity to have a quick look inside 33 Hawley as we prepare to partially open the building this fall.

In anticipation of welcoming the Northampton Center for the Arts and Northampton Community Television into 33 Hawley Street this fall, we're hosting free events this summer that we hope will give everyone a taste of the possibilities to come!
