The movie was excellent. It is probably as close as I will ever get to Northern Lights. It was beautiful and music that played during the presentation was perfect

The theater presents Alaska's Great Northern Lights featuring the Aurora. This is an accumulation of many night time Aurora Pictures gathered over an extended period of time. You get to see more colors than one would normally see by oneself. Amazing display.

Really enjoyed this movie. The location was convenient and staff very nice and helpful. The venue most comfortable and we were in a smaller theater away from the main area.

We attend several concerts a year and have always enjoyed this venue. The acoustics are good, seats are, for the most part, comfortable and there is a good sightline to the stage in all seating areas.
