Here's look at some events taking place across the San Antonio area this weekend.
The Alamo IMAX debuts one of nature’s most epic journeys, the mass migration of the monarch butterfly, in 3D this weekend. The critically acclaimed film, “Flight Of The Butterflies,” shows the yearlong annual migration cycle through the eyes of film crews that tracked the Monarchs’ journey from Canada, through the United States and all the way to a remote mountain range in Mexico. The film is showing through the end of November. Get your tickets here.
