This is a one hour informative reenactment of the Alamo massacre. It is well done. A bit pricey, but I recommend seeing it before you visit the Alamo. It's right across the street from the exhibit.

Nice theater, but the movie had some horrible acting! It was more of a comedy than anything. It was great for showing the historial facts, but not worth the price. I think the movie should definitely be free.

We saw the IMAX film The Alamo after having visited the Alamo, and we would recommend doing it in reverse. See this film first - it will help make the visit to the actual site much more meaningful. The film is extremely well done -...More
