Studio 54

by Matt Tyrnauer Gala Premieres

„When you walked through those blacked out doors, you were in another world.“ Located on New York’s West Side, "Studio 54" became a legend upon its exuberantly celebrated opening night. Founded by the big-dreaming and equally enterprising friends Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell in April 1977, the club soon became a hot spot for a high society that stood for a new, extensively hedonistic party culture. Getting past the selective bouncers proved to be increasingly difficult for regular mortals – which only fuelled more rumours about the mysterious place. Negative publicity also came sooner rather than later: just 33 months after its opening, the club was stormed by the US tax authority and Schrager and Rubell found themselves behind bars. 40 years after its closure, STUDIO 54 offers a vibrant portrait of the most legendary nightclub of all time.
