My first visit to the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex was last week and as I walked through the main entry doors, my first thought was, “Where am I?”
The IMAX complex is far more than just a movie theater. I expected to see a ticket booth, concession stand and hallways lined with theater doors but I was so wrong. Instead, I walked into a marketplace filled with specialty shops, a restaurant, several movie theaters, a live theatre and even a clock shop.
The IMAX is more of a one-stop place for families, because you could easily spend a good amount of time here. Maybe even a full day. There are a ton of ways to fill your day here. You can browse the 17 different specialty shops, stop into McFarlain’s Family Restaurant for a bite to eat, watch one of Hollywood’s newest productions on the big screen or enjoy a live show at the Little Opry Theatre, all of which can be found nestled in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.
This great family stop also offers a variety of free activities for all ages. The Little Opry Theatre offers seven different live shows every week, including a free Sunday morning worship service, so if you’re vacationing in Branson and aren’t sure where to go on Sunday morning, head to the IMAX!
Free Movie Wednesdays also feature free family-appropriate films every Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m. during the month of July. The promotion is in conjunction with all-you-can-eat pancakes at McFarlain’s from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. every Wednesday, so you and your family can fill up with an endless pancake breakfast and then waddle your way over to the Elite Cinema III inside the entertainment complex for a free movie.
Like I said before, Branson IMAX is much more than just a movie theater so next time you’re in town, check it out and discover a whole new world of entertainment like I did!
