Hull Independent Cinema: STUDIO 54

30 Aug 2018




Studio 54 was the epicentre of 70s hedonism – a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolise 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.

Starring Steve Rubell andIan Schrager.

“For those of us who never went (and probably couldn’t have gotten in if we tried), “Studio 54″ lets you taste a bit of the ecstasy.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety.

“An enjoyable ride that captures both the excitement of the party and the shameful details of its aftermath.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.
