Studio 54



Studio 54


Thursday 23 May 8.30pm Channel 039

Studio 54 was the epicentre of 70’s hedonism – a monumental magnet for film stars, beautiful people, casual sex, disco and mounds of cocaine. It was a one of kind nightclub – a den of excess that made its own rules and became the pleasure dome for the fabulous, the ostracised and gay. Matt Tyrnaur (Valentino: The Last Emperor) chronicles the rise and fall of the nightclub’s founders, two best friends from Brooklyn – Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, who became as infamous as the club itself.  They created a dream, a phenomenon and conquered New York for 3 giddy years, only to have it all crumble before their eyes. With amazing archival footage and interviews, Studio 54 provides a rare glimpse into a world and a time that has never been captured since. Featuring Liza Minelli, Andy Warhol, Bianca Jagger and many more...
