Limelight.

Limelight, a documentary detailing the rise and fall of notorious club king Peter Gatien, opens this weekend. Expect a large dose of early ‘90s club kid fashion inspiration. 

As the owner of legendary hotspots like Limelight, Tunnel, Palladium and Club USA, Peter Gatien was the king of the New York club scene until years of legal battles led to his eventual deportation to Canada. This exuberant documentary charts Gatien’s rise and fall against the transformation of New York City, offering a wild ride through a now-closed chapter in the history of NYC nightlife.
