Having premiered at Sundance Film Festival this January, Studio 54, directed by Matt Tyrnauer, is a documentary that follows the journeys of club owners Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell along their domination of New York City’s nightlife scene in the 1970s. While the nightclub, whose regulars included Andy Warhol, Liza Minnelli, Mick Jagger, Grace Jones, and many more, has been the subject of various documentaries, Tyrnauer hopes to tell the real story. The film includes never before seen footage of the famous party space and interviews with both club owners and the seminal artists who performed there.

The film’s official synopsis reads: “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.”

Studio 54 is now showing in London cinemas for a limited time – book tickets here.
