Friday Night Freak Show – Trainspotting
5906 W Vliet St
The WMSE 91.7FM Friday Night Freak Show returns with Danny Boyle’s hyper-kinetic culture classic TRAINSPOTTING. Doors and DJ at 6:30, film at 7:30. Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a starter home. Choose dental insurance, leisure wear, and matching luggage. Choose your future. But why would anyone want to do a thing like that? TRAINSPOTTING is spectacular, groundbreaking entertainment powered by a high-energy soundtrack and an outstanding cast of stars including Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller.
Heroin addict Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) stumbles through bad ideas and sobriety attempts with his unreliable friends — Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Begbie (Robert Carlyle), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Tommy (Kevin McKidd). He also has an underage girlfriend, Diane (Kelly Macdonald), along for the ride. After cleaning up and moving from Edinburgh to London, Mark finds he can’t escape the life he left behind when Begbie shows up at his front door on the lam, and a scheming Sick Boy follows.
