Edinburgh Tattoo Film
The Cineplex Odeon Theatre at South Keys in Ottawa will be screening The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at three times this month (Oct. 6th, 7th, and 10th).
The film “will capture the imagination of our audience in Kaleidoscope. Exploring colour, music and light, the 2019 Tattoo is inspired by the optical invention created by Scottish physicist Sir David Brewster in 1816. Celebrating glorious symmetries through precision-led performances, with the British Army at the fore, military and cultural acts from across the globe will be joined by the iconic Massed Pipes and Drums, Pipers Trail, Tattoo Dance Company and Hjaltibonhoga. Bigger and better than ever before, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an experience for the senses.”
