A New Documentary Revisits the Golden Days of Studio 54

Directed by Matt Tyrnauer, the film chronicles the sexy, debaucherous history of New York City's most famous nightclub.

Gone may be the days of the drug-fueled, animalistic, and freer-than-free spirit of Studio 54, but that doesn't mean the iconic New York nightclub is disappearing in the digital age thanks to a new documentary film set to be released this summer. 

Studio 54 chronicles the rise and fall of the cultural institution and features never-before-seen vintage video footage and interviews with the club's founders Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, as well as stories from celebrity regulars such like Liza Minnelli, Nile Rodgers, and the legendary Miss Diana Ross, among others.

The film is directed by famed director/producer/journalist Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emperor, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City). It premiered at Sundance earlier this year and is set to hit theaters June 15.
