Book cinema tickets for Trainspotting

Please note: The 1.35pm screening on Sunday 13 August will screen from DCP (digital) - all other screenings are scheduled to be from a 35mm print.

A shocking, painfully subjective trawl through the Edinburgh heroin culture of the 1980s, Irvine Welsh's cult novel was hardly an obvious choice for the team who made Shallow Grave, yet the film's a triumph. Audaciously punching up the pitch-black comedy, juggling parallel character strands and juxtaposing image, music and voice-over with a virtuosity worthy of Scorsese on peak form, Trainspotting the movie captures precisely Welsh's insolent, amoral intelligence.
