A Crane at 150 Charles; Museum-Worthy CBGB Bathrooms

TRIBECA?Two Michaels (both Bloomberg and Moore) and a cadre of other important folks are breaking ground tomorrow on a brand-new movie theater, called DCTV Cinema, which will be exclusively devoted to screening documentaries. The coolest part, in our view? It's located on the first floor of a firehouse built in 1860, on 87 Lafayette Street between Walker and White. Pretty cool venue to see a good film, if you ask us, but you'll have to wait till it opens in 2015. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

WEST VILLAGE?Aaaaand there's action at the 150 Charles construction site! A new, big-ass crane. Then again, considering the steel frame of the neighbor-hated condo project isn't even done yet and that hasn't deterred more than 60 buyers from nabbing apartments based on renderings alone, they'll probably be pretty psyched to, you know, see some walls go up.

UPPER EAST SIDE?Want to remember those hazy nights spent partying till dawn on the Bowery? In particular, where you, um, relieved yourself during those nights? Well, the new exhibition at the Met's Costume Institute, Punk: From Chaos to Couture (images!), which opened today, includes a re-creation of the pretty darn disgusting graffiti-covered bathroom at CBGB. You can actually see how gross it was now... because you probably won't ingest any substances at a museum, right? We can't decide if we miss those days or not.
