Be sure to go see "Alamo...the Price of Freedom" before you visit the Alamo. The large format film is the most accurately told story of the battle in a film format. Also, there are 3D films on the second large format screen including traditional IMAX...More

We saw the feature about the Alamo. It was a decent and informative show (we learned more about the Alamo here than at the actual Alamo) but it was pricey.

It was a made along time ago, so the acting is what it is, but very enjoyable. I enjoyed it more than the alamo.

nice comfortable IMAX theatre in the heart of downtown by the Alamo. If bad weather should drive you inside you can catch a movie either in the IMAX theatre or they have regular screen as well

I would recommend watching the movie before going to the Alamo. The shrine will mean a lot more. Comfortable seats, well done movie.

Informative and entertaining movie. It was nice to see it before going across the street to the Alamo. I thought that it made visiting the Alamo a more complete experience - the Alamo itself is a fairly quick walkthrough (maybe 20 minutes to 1.5 hours...More

It's fun for a new show ... panoramic show like a Disney film. But the consession stand is lame. When will they start serving carrot sticks and celery like others?
