Love is the Message

Director: Gary Turzilli, Jim Bidgood, Nicky Siano Run Time: 80 min. Format: DCP

In 1972 The Gallery opened and for 6 years it ruled as New York City’s hottest dance club. Now, for the first time in film history, you will go inside one of the hottest clubs ever, actually filmed at the club during its heyday.

Sequences filmed inside The Gallery were directed by Jim Biggood, who directed the classic Pink Narcissus. Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles, Grace Jones and Loleatta Hollowav are a few of the legends who began their career working at the club. It has been called the first disco.

The innovative lighting, environment and sound design was the inspiration for The Paradise Garage and Studio 54 and heralded by New York Magazine and many other publications as the impetus for the disco scene. Now, for the first time ever, you will spend a night at The Gallery, filmed 1976-77. You will be transported into the past and you will never want to return!
