No Guts, No Heart, No Glory At The Queen Street Gym
No Guts, No Heart, No Glory won the The Scotsman Fringe First Awards at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014 so we know this is gonna be a good one!

Winona Wednesday | Reality Bites At The Northbridge Piazza
Winona Wednesday is a thing and it happens on the last Wednesday of every month, huzzah! Take a trip back to the 1990s with Reality Bites (yep this movie was made over 20 years ago, just take a minute and let that sink in) and watch Winona when she was young and innocent, before the whole shoplifting thing (ahem). Head in to Northbridge early and grab a bite to eat before settling down in front of the big screen. Get more info here.
