“Great Place for a Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I have seen a lot of great concerts and shows here. The staff is top notch, the facility is clean, comfortable, and has nice acoustics.
Located downtown in the heart of it all, so have coffee, dinner, and see a show. Tuba Christmas is free, and on New Years Eve it's cool to warm up in the lobby before the fireworks.

“Not much help!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Asked about bookstores in Anchorage was told rather glumly that there were none. Had read in my guide book that there were 3 but didn"t find them as I was told to get on a bus to Barnes and Nobles which was the only place with books!! Did go there but bit disappointed with selection on Alaska. Bring back old fashioned book stores!!!

“Aurora - The video”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Most likely you won't have the time or the patience to see this unpredictable phenomenon if you are visiting so this show is well worth the money. It is on a big screen in the theatre and has a great soundtrack.

“Probably my favorite place in Anchorage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

As a local, I love the PAC. I have seen some of the best shows that travel to Alaska here. As a person who used to tech for my high school play productions, it is amazing to see all what goes on for a single show. I have been in all of the theaters inside of the PAC. A must see thing if you are visiting or living here.

“Anchorage PAC to the locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

A stunning building with great acoustics makes for an excellent listening experience. Whether music, plays or lectures the seating allows for a memorable experience. The variety of events featured is varied and should appeal to all ages. Paired with dinner downtown Anchorage your evening will be a memorable one.
