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, as Studio 54 lands on DVD and limited edition Blu-ray, and we have three copies of the film to give away on DVD!
With rare footage, a parade of colourful patrons and staff, and brutally honest interviews with notorious owner, Ian Schrager, STUDIO 54 is a riveting study in contradictions. The palatial theatre-turned-disco had an atmosphere of total acceptance, whether drag queen, octogenarian, waiter, or celebrity. Yet outside, a frenzied, excluded mob yearned to catch the eye of the doorman and beckoned to be ushered into the sanctum of pulsating love. The glittering club sprang from carefree naiveté and unbridled ambition — yet those same instincts managed to destroy it.
To be in with a chance of winning one of the three DVDs, all you have to do is fill in the form below. We’ll pick three names at random after the closing date (24th August 2018), all of whom will win a copy of the film on DVD. The editor’s decision is final and there is no cash alternative. Good luck!
Studio 54 is out on limited edition Blu-Ray + DVD from 6th August, 2018.
