“I haven’t spoken about it for almost 40 years,” Cofounder of Studio 54, Ian Schrager, told Page Six. “Because I’d been so quiet … people took liberties remembering what happened.”
Though the club was only open for 33 months, it defined a generation. “When you were in there you achieved an absolute sense of freedom and that’s why people are still fascinated,” Schrager said.
'Studio 54' the documentary is already getting Oscar buzz and lots of media attention, and has been defined as "thrilling and definitive." Schrager reveals that it wasn't exactly the plan he had signed up for. “I was thinking of a very different film,” says Schrager of the project. “I wanted to tell a story of New York and the times.” Instead, audiences will have a peek into the world of A-list celebrities and what happened beyond the music.
'Studio 54' landed its distribution deal at the Cannes Film Festival. Official dates are yet to be announced.
