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.

Saw Rogue One in this theater and it was Fantastic. Big screen and very comfortable seating. This was my first time ever in an IMAX theater and I was amazed at the size of the screen. Made my movie experience that much more enjoyable.

The 50-minutere re-creation of the battle of the Alamo made our visit to the Alamo very profitable. The theater is just a block away from the Alamo itself.

So you buy your ticket, then go through the parking garage to the theater. Kids really enjoyed recliners

We watched the Alamo movie. It was a good history of the battle but I thought $12 each was a bit high. If you have time it's good but it's not a must see.

I saw the movie before going to The Alamo. I'm glad I did. It made visiting the historical site more real. They did a good job with the movie. In about 45 minutes it not only explained the battle and its significance it gave some...More

We went to watch an actual IMAX movie but got distracted with another regular movie in the normal portion of the theater. I was originally irritated because I had movie theaters in my home town so it was nothing new but holy smokes that theater...More
