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.

I grew up in Minnesota and experienced the Northern Light from time to time during the Winter months. My wife grew up in Southern California and had not had a similar experience so we decided to attend the film session of the "Lights" at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. 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.

We visited here in June and were amazed at the beauty of the Aurora film. It was well done and demonstrated the many different forms and colors presented by the Auroras. I really appreciated the work that the photographer spent from 1981 to present to captures these images. It seems a bit pricey at 13.00 per person but I am... More

Just saw this show this week and I highly recommend it. It's very real and the photos that this artist has captured over the years are incredible! I felt fortunate to be able to witness all those years of his labor culminate in this emotional viewing of the Northern lights. It's a great way to experience the Northern Lights during... More
