When I showed up at the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex to see Rocky Mountain High! A Tribute to John Denver I realized how much fun stuff was going on inside the complex and decided to stick around after the show to enjoy it all.
If you haven’t been there yet, the Branson IMAX is an incredible array of restaurants, specialty shops, live shows inside the Little Opry Theatre and great movies on the big screen.
This past week, the IMAX even had a special Military Film Festival to celebrate Branson’s Veterans Homecoming Week and Veterans Day so of course I had to stop by the huge inflatable tank display that accompanied the Ghost Army documentary showing. It really was life-sized! If you missed the Branson Veterans Homecoming Week festivities this year, don’t worry. Next year’s special events and displays are sure to be just as exciting!
In addition to all the special events and displays at the IMAX this past week, the complex’s many shops provide guests with shopping entertainment year round! I stopped in several different specialty shops, my favorite of which was Ozark Mountain Time Clock Shop. It was unbelievable how many different varieties of clocks they sell and any of them would make a fantastic Christmas gift.
D&D Leather shop was also really neat and featured all kinds of leather products from purses and wallets to cell phone covers, luggage, vests and jackets. There were plenty of great Christmas gifts in there too!
You could probably spend an entire day at the Branson IMAX shopping, enjoying a live show and sitting in on a movie on the big screen. If you get hungry sometime in between all that, make sure to stop by McFarlain’s Family Restaurant for mouthwatering homestyle cooking. After your meal, sink your teeth into a creamy, smooth hunk of fudge, also sold right inside the IMAX Entertainment Complex.
Whatever way you choose to spend your time at Branson’s IMAX, you’re sure to have a great time!
The IMAX is at 3562 Shepherd of the Hills Expwy. just down the road from the RFD-TV Theatre.
