The Alaska Experience Theatre brings history and fun to the local community! With our 40ft main screen that we show Alaska-themed short films on during the summer, and our 32 seat "Safe Quake Theater" where the seats shake during our film AET can...more
though the entertainment offered was interesting, it did not live up to the hype. We did only view the "earthquake experience", however. Maybe the other presentations were better. There was no actual "schedule". The attendant started the presentation once we were ready.
For a lifetime Alaskan I found this to be pretty cool. I would recommend this event. The northern lights by Todd where spectacular and the history of the 1964 quake was great. And always fun to have a shaken going on. We found Todd at...More

The movies are awesome. We saw 3 including the earthquake experience, which was eye opening. Beyond the movies being great, the man running it could not have been more friendly. I didn't catch his name (he was in a shark shirt today), but he helped...More
Loved the Northern Lights movie! I think the creator would make an awesome adventure guide. The earthquake film is dated but full of information. Even though I knew the doom would be shaking it startled me and I had flash backs of the Exorcist. Easy...More
Some very nice films on Alaska to add to one's personal experiences. The 1964 quake film contains excellent footage and narrative and the shaking seats given the audience a feel of living through a real quake. Also a great way to experience Alaska on a...More
