“Alamo movie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

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.

“do not waste your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

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.

“Movie Time !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

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!

“A MUST-SEE ATTRACTION!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

The Alamo - The Price of Freedom should be seen by anyone visiting the Alamo in San Antonio. This film is in-depth and very well produced. Being inside the large Imax theatre really brings the story home as if you were there! I suggest this for all ages. It is more than worth the price of the movie ticket!!
