A very special festive show filmed in the beautiful surrounds of Stirling Castle, created by a Christmas cracker writing team, featuring sparkling showtunes from Novasound and directed by Scottish Panto King Johnny McKnight.
“You all know the story of Rapunzel, right? That lassie with the long hair who’s been trapped in her lockdown tower for what feels like forever. Well, think again.
“Cos I bet nobody mentioned the hairdresser who made it her life’s mission to track Rapunzel down? Or Rapunzel’s twin brother who’s terrified he’s going to have to take the throne if his sister isn’t found? And they certainly didn’t mention that six foot all singing, all dancing rose in the garden whose psychic visions are going to save the day?
Because you see to truly know a story, you must know all the deets. But finally, at long last, you get to hear from all the characters, all six sides, all six chapters. And despite what you might have thought, they don’t all end in happily ever after.” – Paige Ootabook, Narrator.

An Lanntair Cinema presents a Relaxed Screening (12pm on 23rd December) of Rapunzel to ensure all enjoy their cinema experience. Relaxed Screenings are designed to make the cinema more inclusive and accessible for people with sensory sensitivities, and others who can benefit from this environment including children and families. For these screenings we ensure:
– Sound and lights on low
– No trailers
– Freedom to move around
– Break-out quiet space for anyone who needs it
An Lanntair would like to make your visit to our cinema as safe as possible. We have put a number of measures in place to ensure this, please read the below before you book:
– Please book in advance.
– Only a limited number of seats will be available.
– Our system will automatically ensure that all seats booked will be socially distanced. Audience members should only be gathering in groups of up to two households and no more than six people (including your support bubble) – adults and children over 12 from separate households must book as a separate group.
– In line with Scottish Government guidelines you must wear a face mask in the cinema, your face mask must only be removed to eat and drink.
– We are approaching this very carefully and we will be continually assessing and updating our safety measures to ensure the safety of customers and staff.
