Win a Copy Of The Upcoming Release of Studio 54
Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism – a place 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, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time, as Studio 54 lands on DVD and limited edition Blu-ray.
With rare footage, a parade of colourful patrons and staff, and brutally honest interviews with notorious owner, Ian Schrager, STUDIO 54 is a riveting study in contradictions. The palatial theatre-turned-disco had an atmosphere of total acceptance, whether drag queen, octogenarian, waiter, or celebrity. Yet outside, a frenzied, excluded mob yearned to catch the eye of the doorman and beckoned to be ushered into the sanctum of pulsating love. The glittering club sprang from carefree naiveté and unbridled ambition — yet those same instincts managed to destroy it.
Directed by Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emperor), STUDIO 54 provides unbridled access and often brutally honest insight into the nightclub that people were dying to get into. The bracing story of how two best friends from Brooklyn, Schrager and Steve Rubell, founded the most talked about hotspot of an era reveals how even a potent and culturally transformative phenomenon can be vulnerable and fleeting. Experience the dazzling club in all of its former glory and discover the foibles that led to its (and its owners’) demise, when STUDIO 54 releases on home platforms.
