Watching the Alamo IMAX movie was a great way to learn more about the Battle at the Alamo and made the Alamo more real for us. I highly recommend it.

Go to The Fight for Texas. Sit in the back! IMAX is very intense! Very moving. A little expensive for a 45-minute movie, but worth it.

Saw Rogue One in this theater and it was Fantastic. Big screen and very comfortable seating. This was my first time ever in an IMAX theater and I was amazed at the size of the screen. Made my movie experience that much more enjoyable.

The 50-minutere re-creation of the battle of the Alamo made our visit to the Alamo very profitable. The theater is just a block away from the Alamo itself.

So you buy your ticket, then go through the parking garage to the theater. Kids really enjoyed recliners

We had already been to the Alamo and have leads great deal about it but the movie is a great way to bring the story to life. It is pretty graphic but my 8 year old was concerned but not scared.
