Sneak Peek a new poster supporting the documentary "Limelight", directed by Billy Corben.

Opening in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, September 23, 2011, from Video Services Corp. (VSC), "Limelight", is the 'coke-and-dagger' feature, documenting the rise and fall of New York's greatest nightclub empire, founded by Canadian-born Peter Gatien:

"...As the owner of legendary drugs and sex dance hotspots like 'Limelight', 'Tunnel', 'Palladium' and 'Club USA', Peter Gatien was the undisputed king of the 1980's New York City club scene.

"The eye-patch-sporting Ontario native built and oversaw a Manhattan empire that counted tens of thousands of patrons per night in its peak years, acting as a conduit for a culture that, for many, defined the image of an era in New York. Then years of legal battles and police pressure spearheaded by New York Mayor Giuliani’s determined crackdown on nightlife in the mid-’90s led to Gatien’s eventual deportation to Canada, and the shuttering of his glitzy kingdom..."

"Limelight", acquired by VSC from Magnolia Pictures, opens in Canada September 23, 2011, day and date with the US release.
