The lights will come on again!


The ByTowne is now closed. But there's good news!

After the pandemic has been brought under control,
new management will take over the space and the ByTowne will re-open.

It may take a while for pandemic restrictions to be eased enough
that a feasible number of patrons can be allowed to watch a movie again,
but the new owners are working towards that day.

T2 Trainspotting

Face your past. Choose your future.

In 1996 Danny Boyle made the brash, bratty Trainspotting tracing the depraved hijinks of feckless heroin addicts in a depressed section of Edinburgh. The misadventures of Ewan McGregor’s Renton, Jonny Lee Miller’s Sick Boy and Ewen Bremner’s Spud were funny and awful and exhilarating, in roughly equal measures.

Poster for T2 Trainspotting by Danny BoyleNow, some 20 years later, T2 Trainspotting picks up the threads of these three BFFs’ stories and updates us on the résumé of rage-nutter Begbie (Robert Carlyle). The lives of all four come together again, accompanied by the usual ribbing and brawls and, in some cases, all-out murderous apoplexy. 

Boyle keeps the energy level at a sustained high, buoyed by the charm of his actors, all of whom still look pretty damn good – especially McGregor, who remains a charismatic wag. Yet it’s Bremner’s Spud, who’s struggling to stay clean, that you’re likely to feel the most for. It’s not always so easy to choose life, and watching Spud figure it out is one of T2’s greatest pleasures.
