For those interested in Scottish culture or the thrills and spills of a military spectacular, the internationally renowned Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a must-see event. Now, before making the trip to Scotland in person, Chinese audiences have the chance to experience the event at the cinema.

In cooperation with ATW Beijing and CinemaLive, the Tattoo hit the Chinese big screen for the first time on Jan 25 in Beijing, the birthday of Scottish poet Robert Burns. Other screenings opened in Shanghai, Chengdu, Guangzhou and Wuhan on the same day, offering audiences a true taste of Scottish pride and a celebration of world cultures.

The event being screened is the 2018 Tattoo which was based around the theme of "The Sky's the Limit", commemorating the centenary of Britain's Royal Air Force and echoing Scotland's "Year of Young People" in 2018.
