Ever wondered why we are called The Three Sisters? Back in 1741 our building was a playhouse attracting great crowds to some of the best entertainment in Edinburgh. Renowned for their talent, the Three MacKinnon Sisters – Cath, Kitty and Maggie often graced the staged. Unfortunately our girls were executed for unlawfully performing and rumour has it they were sealed into the very room they used for their performances, now located on our first floor.
The Three Sisters make appearances every now and then – tugging on a chef apron & shrieking at staff in dark cupboards… though it’s been becoming more and more common as Halloween fast approaches. Come & feel the eeriness yourself as from 24th – 31st we’re celebrating Zombie Fest.
Halloweek kicks off with our Walking Dead Quiz on Monday 24th featuring a £50 bar tab and great prizes up for grabs, you’d be a ghoul not to get involved. Then Maggie & her sisters want you to join them in the haunted cinema for a night of terror with some horror classics. Join us on Thursday for a monster mash during Zombieoke and sing your way to the grave.
We then thank Freddy it’s Friday as The Mackinnon girls bring you Edinburgh’s BIGGEST and best Halloween party! “And with a jump to the left” we bring you our Courtyard Cinema special, the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. So adorn those fish nets and join in with our time warp and watch Tim Curry at his best.
With so many events to choose from, the Three Sisters is the only place to be this Halloween!
