It was raining in San Antonio, so it gave us something to do inside. I was not impressed with the acting. A couple of interesting facts that I had overlooked, but don’t expect any wow factor.

As a Canadian, I didn't know a lot about the Alamo or what had happened there other than often hearing the phrase "Remember the Alamo." After watching the movie, I had a much better understanding and appreciation. The theatre itself was very comfortable and convenient...More

Ok, the theatre was clean but the bimbo behind the counter sent us to the wrong theatre. All of a sudden we were watching some 3D movie. Good thing our movie had not started yet. The acting was very cheesy but it definitely explains the...More

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.
