Very educational show on the Alama. After touring the Alamo, this IMAX was even more interesting. Look for a coupon in one of the travel brochures.
Highly recommend seeing this before you visit the Alamo. A bit over dramatized and given the lack of eyewitness accounts, perhaps not totally accurate, but a reasonable representation to create the context of what happened at the Alamo.
I've rated the IMAX as being a very good attraction instead of excellent for one due to one reason. That being the film of the Alamo. I question the historical accuracy of movie, but I guess everyone has their own beliefs as to what took place within the Alamo walls on March 6, 1836. I must say the actors and... More
We saw The Alamo movie after we went to the Alamo and wished we did it the other way around. Seeing the film makes the experience more meaningful. There are negative reviews for this movie.

I ignored the negative reviews and regretted it. The theater is fine, but we went to see the Alamo movie and were very disappointed. It seems rather dated, and feels like a badly acted TV movie. The "IMAX" format couldn't rescue the experience.
The IMAX is the same standard as all IMAX theaters I have been to. What one must see if the Alamo film, preferably before touring the Alamo. Even if you know your history, this is an excellent true account of the events leading up to and through the siege. Do not miss this if you have the time in San... More
We have been here twice and both times watched The Alamo. We took our grandkids the second time wondering if they would like it. They loved it and it has become one of their best memories of San Antonio.
Overly dramatized to the point of self-satire. STirring speeches throughout and not all credible. Big disappointment.. Devolved in the last minutes into seemingly unending battle scenes. Perhaps we expected something more historical and less hammy.
My wife and I needed a cool break from walking the river walk and mall so, we decided to visit the IMAX. Say The Last Reef. We are both divers and we enjoyed this just as much. The producer did a wonderful job on the underwater shooting. Very highly recommend a visit!
