The event starts at 7:15 p.m. and will be presented on a large outdoor screen near the Magik Theatre located close to the Hemisfair entrance of South Alamo.

Filmed at actual historic sites in Texas and Mexico with noted historians and professional actors, “Texas Before The Alamo” is about the founding of Texas and the Spanish who established Missions, Presidios and Trails now known as Goliad, the Alamo, San Antonio Missions & El Camino Real de los Tejas. The Film is based on true accounts extensively researched in the Spanish and French Archives by authors, archaeologists, historical organizations and experts of Spanish Texas who have been consultants and producers for the Film. Unrecognized and often criticized, they have labored for over a century in the Archives and at historic sites on the epic stories of the true pioneers of Texas.
