Gotham gets down

History hustles to 'Disco'

“History is made at night” is the tagline for Whit Stillman’s “The Last Day of Disco,” so it was fitting that the May 27 Gotham premiere was a benefit for the New York Historical Society.

Following a screening of the Castle Rock production at the Directors Guild of America Theater, filmgoers segued to the historical society’s building on Central Park West for a disco-themed party.

Repping the Gramercy Pictures release were Stillman and cast members Chloe Sevigny, Chris Eigeman, Mackenzie Astin, Matt Keeslar, Matthew Ross, Tara Subkoff, Michael Weatherly, David Thornton, Jennifer Beals and Jaid Barrymore.

Also in attendance were the film’s co-producer Edmon Roch, exec producer John Sloss, Stillman’s agent, John Lesher of UTA, Liev Schreiber, ICM’s Bart Walker and William Morris agents Johnnie Planco and Frank Frattaroli as well as disco divas Carol Douglas and Vicki Sue Robinson.
