Five Things To Do In Edinburgh: Tuesday 6 November

Your pick of the city’s nights out

• FILM: Fun Size (12A). Wren (Victoria Justice) is thrilled when dreamboat Aaron (Thomas McDonell) invites her to his Halloween party. Alas, the young woman’s excitement is extinguished when her mother Joy (Chelsea Handler) reveals she is going to a party with her 27-year-old boyfriend (Josh Pence). This condemns Wren to babysitting her destructive little brother, Albert (Jackson Nicoll). Suitably aggrieved, Wren heads into the night with best friends April (Jane Levy) and Albert in tow. At a haunted house, Wren loses her little brother and she encourages April and debate team school mates Roosevelt (Thomas Mann) and Peng (Osric Chau) to help her search for the oddball tyke. Meanwhile, comic book-obsessed cashier Fuzzy (Thomas Middlemarch) befriends Albert and invites his costumed sidekick on a mission to win back his girlfriend Lara (Abby Elliott) from her tattooed new beau, Jorgen (Johnny Knoxville).
