BRANSON, MO, August 6, 2013 — Where can you eat fried pickles see a truly legendary show, hear Elvis sing, see a Celebrity Car Museum and experience a legendary show all at one place? All this and more is at the Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater Complex on the famed “Branson Strip.”
The Complex is “an integrated entertainment and hospitality destination” with a state of the art theatre featuring the Legends in Concert and the Bretts shows, a Celebrity Car Museum, an adjacent Ramada Inn and the recently reopened “Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill.” Among many others the Grill’s new menu includes classic signature items such as Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches, Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers and Fried Pickles.
In talking about all that the Complex offers, Legends in Concert General Manager, Jeannie Horton said that the Grill is the perfect enhancement for the Complex. It enables their guests to park their car, enjoy a truly unique dining experience at the Grill, peruse the expanded museum quality memorabilia in the theater lobby, see the Celebrity Car Museum and top it off by seeing the award-winning Legends in Concert show without ever leaving the Complex.
The opening of the Grill was made possible because local Springfield/Branson businessman and philanthropist Jim D. Morris, who purchased the Complex in 2011, entered into an agreement with Dick Clark Productions for re-opening of the Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill at the Complex. In announcing the addition of the Grill Morris said that he was ” delighted to have the Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill re-open and pleased to see it restored to its original name, concept and design within the Bandstand Complex.”
Morris also announced that the Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater Complex will continue its long-term relationship with the celebrated tribute artist production, Legends in Concert saying, “The strength of the ongoing partnership with Legends in Concert and Dick Clark Productions was instrumental in the decision to bring the Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill back to Branson.” Liz Morentin, Vice President of Corporate Communications, for Dick Clark Productions said, “Jim D. Morris is a terrific partner and we look forward to having Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Grill…in Branson. Our team has handpicked many unique, one of a kind memorabilia items from our archives to decorate the restaurant and to enhance the current collection of pop culture items in the theater lobby.”
