Branson Imax features FilmFest

Branson’s Imax Entertainment Complex is in the midst of their 15ht Annual FilmFest. A popular event, FilmFest introduces four all-new films to the Imax audiences. The festival runs through April 17th.

The four new Imax films available explore the past, the present and the exotic.

“Dinosaurs Alive” shows creatures from the Triassic through the Cretaceous periods, in near life-size form. The film depicts the dinosaurs’ suspected descendents of modern times.

“India: Kingdom of the Tiger” takes the viewer on a trip to India to come “face-to-face” with Bengal Tigers. Jim Corbett, an early 1900s writer, hunter and conservationist, serves as guide on the journey.

“Ride around the World” takes you on a astonishing journey through Argentina, British Columbia, Chile, Mexico, Morocco, Spain and Texas to meet vaqueros, gauchos, baqueanos and cowboys – all part of a single global horse culture. Exploring this culture that helped shape Western civilization for a thousand years Ride Around the World is an active and educational adventure.

“Grand Canyon Adventure” is a wet and wild rafting ride down the Colorado river. The explorers featured in the film hope to bring more awareness to global water issues, using the Colorado river as an example.

Imax films are shown on a screen 10-times larger than standard motion picture screens, and are combined with state-of-the-art sound.
