Watched price of freedom, not a big budget production but a good way for two elementary school boys to get more perspective. Not a bad price, close to Alamo. Parking can be validated. Just 45 minutes length. Movie not overly violent.

This movie was just "so-so" definitely not worth the money we paid. I thought the video we watched at the Alamo sight for free was just as good if not better!

While we were at the Alamo we dicided on our last day to go check out the short film. It was pretty well made and had some decent acting for a documentary. I would recommend it if you aren't familiar with the history .

Watching the Alamo IMAX movie was a great way to learn more about the Battle at the Alamo and made the Alamo more real for us. I highly recommend it.

The Imax was part of the Sightseeing package we purchased. Right after we visited the Alamo, we went to the Imax and watched the historically accurate "movie type" presentation. 45 minutes long. The presentation gives you a true depiction of what really happened and the...More

Very good, gives you a sense of patriotism and pride Very well done. Tip, see it before you tour the Alamo itself Great for the whole family

Go to The Fight for Texas. Sit in the back! IMAX is very intense! Very moving. A little expensive for a 45-minute movie, but worth it.
