BRANSON, MO – The 11-screen Branson Meadows Cinema has closed. Located in the Shoppes at Branson Meadows and operated by Nova Cinemas, the theater had beem operating for ten years.
The cinema featured 11 houses, a large lobby with a small arcade, a central concession area with four serving stations and all stadium seating. It has also become a local hangout.
“I hate that it is closing,” Branson resident Sandy Booth said. “It is close to home and we come here all the time. I’m definitely going to miss it. My son worked here while he was in high school.”

Honestly, I am not surprised that they closed. The last several times that I had gone to the theatre, there was hardly anyone there. Also, the theatre had resorted to playing DVD’s of independent films for first run prices a number of months before.
I worked at that theatre and it isn’t going to be closed forever. Someone else bought the theatre and it is going to be opening sometime this month. The only thing we played DVD’s for was the free kid shows this summer, so get your facts straight before you go saying things that aren’t 100% true.
