17 years after its initial release in 1998, “54” has been newly restored and re-edited to include 34 minutes of never before seen footage.  Set against the backdrop of Studio 54's party lifestyle that made the club infamous in the 70s, the Director's Cut explores in greater depth a love triangle between the bartender Shane, the coat check girl Anita and the busboy Greg.  The movie bombed in 1998, but the additional “gay” footage establishes 54 as a cult gay classic which more accurately reflects the realities of the club and the mores of our times now.  Ensemble cast starring Ryan Phillippe, Mike Meyers and Salma Hayek.
