I think this show only runs until Sept. 1, 2014, but it is excellent. We learned a lot about the Northern Lights, and the pictures/show is really well done. It is fascinating to see, and humbling to realize the efforts put forth to capture this artistic work of pictures taken over 30 years time.

Alaska Center fro the Performing Arts is a wonderful building with different venues. We went there to see Aurora - Alaska's Great Northern Lights. It was a nice presentation to see for people that has never experienced the Northern Lights in real life. The seating was great and comfortable.

Stop by in a Barnes and Noble store and pickup a book on Northern Light. It will be much better and cheaper.

It is a great film showing spectacular pictures of... More

We visited to take in a wonderful film about the Aurora Borealis that was shot over many years. We knew that we would not see the lights in person & this satisfied our desire.

My husband and I took our first trip to Alaska this year. We realize that by visiting in the summer means missing out on seeing the northern lights in person. The video of the phenomenon was very well done and we enjoyed it.

Excellent movie and beautifully done to accent the heavenly lights and explaining the reasoning with the solar bursts. Highly recommended if you've never seen the lights

The 45 minute Performing Arts presentation of time lapse photography of auroras from 1981 set to beautifully inspired music. Sit back, relax and enjoy an awesome experience. Shown every hour. Gift shop had the aurora pictured for sale at very reasonable prices.
