1970s New York. One nightclub defines an era and a generation.
For the first time, one of the people behind the infamous Studio 54 tells the in-depth story of how the world's greatest nightclub was created.
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.

★★★★ "Tyrnauer, to his credit, doesn’t shirk from asking Ian Schrager, Rubell’s taciturn business partner, tricky questions" - Ed Potton, The Times
★★★★ "Liberty! Democracy! Dance! (Sex! Drugs!) Matt Tyrnauer’s film eerily evokes it all" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
