Movie Info

Studio 54 was the epicenter 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, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.

All Critics (82) | Top Critics (20)

The movie tries hard to make the story of the club's rise and fall emblematic of an era, but in the end, it's about a couple of old friends from the neighborhood who got lucky, got greedy, and got caught.

The documentary is good on the gay aspect of 54, and disco generally.

October 25, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

In 98 minutes, Studio 54 captures the club on its best nights and on its worst mornings.

[A] lively, contextual but much-too-laudatory documentary...

The film greatly benefits from having the more introverted Schrager still around to provide firsthand insight, with the luxury of 40 years of reflective perspective, into the inner workings of his and Rubell's legendary creation.

Tyrnauer documents it all with journalistic rigour, building his film around the bittersweet memories of the reclusive Schrager... and those of former Studio 54 employees, publicists and patrons.
