Yes, it was beautiful to spend time seeing all the colors of the Aurora, but after 10 minutes, we were bored. Listening to the soothing music, watching the changing lights, just made you want to take a nap. Kids would definitely be restless.

The photography is beautiful. The information shared is helpful in understanding the northern lights. The staff is extremely friendly. The theater is very comfortable.

Spent $25 and totally not worth it. Staff also said they would not refund the money because we stayed half of it. ( we were waiting for something more interesting) What a waste of money. It was like watching a power point slide show from pictures to pictures.

Left halfway through. Boring. Waste of $32. Staff said since I stayed for half of it (wanted to give it a chance) I couldn't get a refund for my family. ***This is the first negative review I've ever written for anything in my life.

This show gives you a good idea of wht the Aurora phenomena really is. And of course it shows it in a way fantastic and unique way, which most non-Alaskans will never have the chance to see. It displays the most beautiful views as they were accumulated by years (since 1980) of committment and dedication by Dave Parkhurst. Worth seeing,... More

4 adults and two children ages 12+13 watched this film and we all felt it was so boring. The pictures were breathtaking but how they were presented was so boring. It was like watching someone else's slideshow. We spent quite a bit of money for the 6 of us and we were ready to leave after 10 minutes.

The aurora images were beautiful but after a while started to feel redundant, as if I was flipping through pictures. I think it could have been great if it was set to better music. We used a buy one get one free coupon through the Northern Lights book, which made it worthwhile. I would have been disappointed if we had... More

Few people will be able to devote the time, cost and energy to take truly spectacular Aurora photos, but everybody can enjoy them in warm comfort from this show.

I guess it was a movie and not the real thing so not too exciting to me. If you need a place to sit inside for a few hours it will be comfortable.

It's pure luck to get a good view/show but when it's good, it's grand!
