Studio 54 was the epicentre 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, this pulse-pounding documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.
