Stop Making Sense - Outdoors!

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at 8:15pm to 11:30pm

Willard Straight Hall, Memorial Room Terrace - Outdoor Screening
Central Campus

1984 > USA > Directed by Jonathan Demme

with the Talking Heads

In 1984, nobody was making music like the Talking Heads, and nobody was making films like the late Jonathan Demme. It was inevitable for them to join forces and make a concert film unlike anything that anyone had seen before.

1 hr 28 mins

Cornell Cinema’s “Cinema Under the Stars” summer series, now in its 18th year, features another great audience-selected line-up. The four films will be shown outdoors on the Willard Straight Terrace, all with a cash bar, complimentary snacks and a great view! Patrons are also welcome to bring picnic dinners. Doors will open at 8:15pm and films will start at 9:30pm, after dark. In the event of rain, screenings will be held in Willard Straight Theatre. Tickets are $13 general/$11 students & seniors and can be purchased in advance online at These tickets will be held at the “will call” table for pickup the night of the show. Any tickets unclaimed by 9:15pm may be resold. Credit cards cannot be used at the door.  Terrace shows typically sell-out in advance, so patrons are encouraged to plan accordingly! Added enticement: drawings for three pairs of Cornell Cinema guest passes will be held at each of the four shows. For more information call (607) 255-3522.
