Over 350 people braved the weekend weather to enjoy two screenings of the film which put Rosslyn Chapel on the worldwide map, held on location to mark the 10th anniversary of its release.
Based on the best-selling novel by Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code featured Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou as the main characters. Filming took place at Rosslyn Chapel, in Midlothian, in September 2005 and brought the 15th century Chapel to worldwide prominence. To mark the film’s 10th anniversary, outdoor screenings were held on Friday 23 September and Saturday 24 September, in the grounds of Collegehill House, adjacent to Rosslyn Chapel. They were sponsored by Quilter Cheviot and supported by Film Mobile.
Author of The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown said: ‘When I decided to write The Da Vinci Code, I knew that its finale would have to take place at the most mysterious and magical chapel on earth—Rosslyn.’
