This amazing film is being shown at the Alaska Center of Performing Arts, in the Sydney Laurence Theater from May 24th to September 1st. The cost is $12 as I recall, and lasts 45 minutes. It is right across from Humphy's Ale House, on West 6th Street. Take the elevator to the second floor and there it is. There is... More

This is a 40 minute film of Dave Parkhurst's stunning photography of the Northern LIghts which is shown hourly at the Alaska Center (Sydney Laurence theater - entrance on 6h Ave across from Humpy's Restaurant). I started out disappointed because I expected to be surrounded by lights and music and when I sat down I realized it was "just a... More

I went to the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts to see the Nutcracker over Thanksgiving weekend in 2014. I was very impressed by the architecture of the building and specifically the beauty of the auditorium. It was gorgeous. We were seated quickly, and there was a mob of people. It was a great place for an evenings entertainment.

We're luck to have the PAC and to have the artists and shows that come... the plays, the operas, the symphony. If you don't KNOW the PAC, be sure and look at the map. IF you don't, you may end up to close or too far, depending on what you're attending. Unfortunately, sometimes it can be difficult to talk to... More

The PAC is the nicest theatre venue in Alaska, and hosts dozens of shows annually. It's a nice facility overall, though it lacks many of the little touches that venues in New York, Seattle, or Los Angeles has (for instance, "box seating" consists of mediocre chairs along the side wall in a space that is otherwise open to the world...

Aside from the busy carpet which can make one dizzy, the acoustics are fabulous. Wonderful Broodway productions, excellent family shows, supurb concerts. I always feel appreciated as a patron.
