Branson, MO – Branson’s IMAX® Entertainment Complex announces the return of new release Hollywood movies with three feature films slated for a late August release.

These films include: Unhinged starring Russel Crowe on Friday, August 21; Marvel’s The New Mutants, the latest installment of the X-Men series, on Friday, August 28; and Christopher Nolan’s much anticipated spy flick, Tenet, with preview nights beginning on Monday, August 31.

“Though Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex has been consistently open since July 1, this will be our first opportunity to bring our community new blockbusters since March” said Tom Forster, VP of Marketing for Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex.

In the aftermath of nationwide COVID-19 shutdowns, movie studios had postponed releasing any new movies indefinitely, scheduling and rescheduling potential opening dates. Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex and the Elite Cinema III have been featuring a “Summer Rewind” movie series highlighting throwback hits like GremlinsRaiders of the Lost Ark, and The Empire Strikes Back.

“Bringing older, cherished films back to the big screen has been fun,” said Forster, “but more importantly, we've wanted to continue to provide moviegoers with that special, immersive IMAX Experience.”

Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex has implemented significant safety procedures to ensure guest, team and community wellness. Those measures include: plexiglass dividers at the box office and concessions; increased cleaning and sanitizing of all high contact areas; sanitizing theater seating and handrails with professional electrostatic equipment; and physical distancing of parties within each movie theater.

“Branson’s currently under a mask ordinance, so of course we’re masked. Once you're seated with your favorite movie treats, those masks can be removed.” said Forster. “We’re one of few movies theaters currently open throughout the country, and we’ve had nearly two months to perfect our safety protocols and our cleaning techniques. The bottom line is, we've taken every precaution to ensure the safety of our team and guests.”

ITEC Attractions, the parent company of Branson’s IMAX Entertainment Complex also owns Branson’s additional movie theater, Branson Meadows Cinema 11, which has remained closed since March. Plans to reopen Branson Meadows Cinema 11 are ongoing and it's expected to reopen before the end of the year, as new releases continue and enough content warrants its return.
