Branson Talk / Re: Starlite Theatre - No more

Unfortunately this is true. It just reinforces some peoples perception of Branson and the people who visit. I LMAO at the news. I cannot imagine what would be in there to see. No thank you.

I agree.. I just SMH at this project..   

I Liked the Starlite theatre, hate to see it changed and done away with. There are other theatre/buildigs in town that would have worked..  but as we have said before....
Location......Location...... Location..

I just hope they done run out of money doing 2 of these at the same time.  That would be par for Branson, tear up something on the main drag, and run out of money... :(

Demo has started at Starlite, and apparantly they are gutting the restaurant, and office space above there.. clearing it all out,  BUT keeping the Atrium area intact.. probably for displays..   (IF it is a museum),,

The heartbeat was leftover from Rube Dugans. To my knowledge, it was supposed to be the "oxygen" pump for the submarine. The same is used at the Flooded mine.

LOL>   Thats the answer to that concern.,.!!   LOL

Here is a picture of a map from 1971 of SDC.

Bring back the shot tower!  ;D

So many Classics!  Come and gone :(

Hindsight says, they should have seat aside about 10 acres for a SDC musuem.!!  Can you imagine?


We felt about the same when we went with comp tickets. Actually left at intermission.

But the bathrooms were really cool to see.

And his daughter couldn’t be untalented if she tried.  We used to joke that if her Dad wasn’t the marquee name she’d never have been hired to the show. 

Bathroom was cool..  But you know, it is only a bathroom..

Show was bad, I stuck it out, kept thinking it would get better... LOL!!!   NOPE!! it didnt.

I stuck it out, kept thinking it would get better, LOL,.  NOPE!  My mistake ??? ???

Shoji thinks he is a comedian and hes not,  They think she can sing, she cant.. 

Bad deal,   I am glad you guys agree, sometimes I think I get overly critical about shows.

I wonder what the numbers will be like tomorrow?  I assume they are talking about rain up there all day tomorrow.

they had about 9,000 today,  doubt if it would be any more than that if weather is good tomorrow... school is still in session, and being middle of the week wont be too bad..

enjoy the visit.

A National Enquirer  Museum. LMAO thinking about what this might include.  UFO's , 95 year old Elvis, This is a step down in Klitch even for Branson , MO.

I dont know.. I have been thinking about too, but cant imagine the stuff they might have.. I first heard about this about a month ago,  but the demo just started,,

NOW keep in mind, there has been NO "official" announcement yet..

:o :o :o :o
Have to admit, that one caught me by surprise.  We really liked that theater.  The atrium was a really neat atmosphere- and they did have the restaurants and eating available in it all day long.  Ate there a couple of times.  That's really to bad.
Are all of the acts going to Americana?  Any ideas about Buckets and Boards?  That's such a step down in the quality of the theater.

I think Buckets is going to appear at The Andy Williams theatre,,,  or whatever its called now....

The other 2 Mainliners - Country Vault, Janice Martin, will be at The Americana.

Hard to tell if The Prophecy or Rock Vault will be back next year at all or not..

I dont know if this has been mentioned yet.  But another project going on in Branson, is The Starlite theatre is closed for good..  most of their shows transfered to The Americana.

The word on the street is They are going to put a  National Inquirer Museum in its place..

I dont know if they are going to rebuild existing structure or demo and rebuild, But they did start interior demo in the Atrium area this week. 

Its  too Bad I always like that theatre, altough the Atrium had to very costly to maintain and didnt earn a single dollar, all wasted space..

All I can say is if they will just rip this ride out like it was nothing it probably wont be too long before they do the same with FM or FITH

Ultimately that is true...

If and when they make that decision, (if it hasnt already been made), they will bring in the dozers and trackhoes and demolish the area without a thought..

Speaking of which, last time we were there I believe Shoji had a show going at one of the other theaters in town, which I thought was odd since he has his own theater.

Yes, Shoji is doing his 2018 christmas show at the clay cooper's theatre for some reason..??   

 I have heard the reasoning behind it, except his theatre isnt repaired yet from the fire and water damage from 2 years ago..  Ha to be more to that story than that.....   LOL
