Chloë Sevigny is infamous New York “Club Kid” Gitsie in the real life party tragedy, PARTY MONSTER
A 35mm presentation.
Based on the book Disco Bloodbath by James St. James, Party Monster is a cult favorite (low budget and charmingly campy) that traces the rise and tragic fall of Michael Alig and the New York club scenes in the 1990s. Fame-hungry Aig arrives on a Greyhound bus in New York City desperate to leave his boring Midwestern past behind. After meeting downtown club kid James St. James and influential nightclub owner Peter Gatien, he decides to throw the most controversial and over-the-top parties in the city but in just a few years Alig’s drug addiction and erratic behavior destroys his empire and ends in murder.
