Enjoyed the Alamo movie at the IMAX...I am certain it was a combination of history and folklore...nonetheless entertaining.

“Good place to kill some time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Had some time to kill waiting to go to the airport, so we took in a couple of IMAX movies. Seats were not comfortable at all, but still was enjoyable.
