The 2014 edition of the long-running Off-the-Wall Film Series, co-presented by The Kansas City Public Library and The Pitch, features musically-themed titles from 1984.

Under the direction of Jonathan Demme, David Byrne and the Talking Heads deliver one of the greatest concert movies ever in Stop Making Sense. Featured are Heads classics like “Take Me to the River,” “Psycho Killer,” “Once in a Lifetime,” and “Burning Down the House.” Not to mention an appearance by Byrne’s “big suit.”

These five films, presented on one Friday each month from May through September on the Rooftop Terrace of the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., offer a tuneful sampling of what Americans were listening to 30 years ago. Featured are such musical artists as Prince and the Talking Heads, an early cinematic celebration of break dancing, and a classic cult film noted for its innovative musical soundtrack.
