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 Antonio! It is well worth it!

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!

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!!
