Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism and the rise of disco music – a legendary place in New York that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, came out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society.  For the first time co-founder Ian Schrager opens up to reveal some amazing stories. Built in six weeks at a cost of $600,000 the club had operating costs of $40,000 a night and only lasted 33 months. The club attracted and embraced everyone – people of colour, women and the LGBTQ community, rich, poor, straight, non-celebrities as well as the likes of Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger, Liza Minnelli and Michael Jackson. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, this feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.

Reviews

Thrilling and definitive...the movie preserves the aura of Studio 54 as a swank pulsating Valhalla, with a ceiling miles above the dance floor, that fused sound and light and drugs and erotic daydream and the imagination of anyone who suddenly felt like they could be whoever they wanted to be.
