TRASHY TREASURE Scary films rise from the dead Back in 1903, the Lyric Theatre on West 42nd Street played host to several Shake-spearean works and later to films, until it closed in 1992. The only treasures that survived its demolition were two scratched-up 35mm films, rescued from a dumpster parked in front of the theater. Now you can see these bizarre gems at tonight’s Grindhouse Double Features at 92YTribeca. The first is the $10,000-bud-get B-movie Bloodthirsty Butchers (1970), director Andy Milligan’s twisted take on CineFear FILM known as Smorgasburg, since flipping through records can build quite an appe-tite.

A bright one is the creation of the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair . In the past, the flea market held its Superstar DJ Record Fair only in the fall, but demand for a second one was so high that organizers have renamed it and made it a semiannual event, beginning today. Best of all, the majority of vendors are local. Venues Knitting Factory and Cake Shop will host tables near clerks from Other Music, who, in turn, will be bumping elbows with folks at record-label booths belonging to Temporary Residence and DFA, among others. Moreover, it’s being held inside the foodstravaganza SHOP CIAO, CYCLISTS! Gran Fondo New York is back Ever participated in or watched a cyclo-sportive? I didn’t know what it was, either: a short-to-long-distance organized mass-participation cycling event. In the U.S., these events are called by the Italian term “gran fondo”—much catchier!—and today marks the second annual Gran Fondo New York , which prides itself on bringing Italian cycling to the Big Apple. Rather than a timed competitive race against other cyclists, the gran fondo is more of a personal best challenge, and what a chal-lenge: 110 miles from New York to Bear Mountain and back with 8,500 feet of climbing and four timed climbs. For rid-ers not ready to take on the “century,” as they call it, there is a 60-mile Medio Fondo. There are also prizes for each age group and a $250 value goody bag. And for those who need new gear, the NYC Bike Expo is taking place before the race on May 18 RECREATION Village Voice M ay 16–M ay 22 , 2012 Affordably priced for these times.
