“Matt Tyrnauer’s thrilling and definitive documentary captures the delirium – and the dark side of the legendary New York disco.” – Variety

Studio 54, which was co-founded by two Jewish friends from Brooklyn, Ian Schrader and Steve Rubell, was more than just a club. Taking hedonism to new heights and attracting every celebrity on the planet, the club gave NYC, a near bankrupt city in the 1970s, the hope and glamour it so needed. While it lasted only three years, the club has become synonymous with excess and carefree fun, and its legacy lives on today. A thrilling tribute to the greatest club of all time and the people behind it, Matt Tyrnauer’s definite documentary is undoubtedly the best party in town.
