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 nam... read 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 startl... read 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 re... read more »

Really nice with clean theater and were extremely family oriented. We watched Totoro here and would definitely do it regularly.
We watched the Alaska Earthquake video, which was a bit creative and informative, but not much better than a video you'd find on Youtube. And it was $10 per person for a less-than 15min video. The theater shakes to simulate the earthquake, which is a very creative idea in theory, but ends up being more annoying than enjoyable. Also, the earthquake simulation happens during the talking on the video, so you can't hear what they're saying while it's happening. I think if they'd had a "live earthquake" portion of the video (showing simulated falling buildings, etc) it would've made more sense. Outside the theater were more videos, which for some reason didn't make it into the earthquake movie. The guy working was over-dramatic and seemed less like a tour guide and more like an on-commision salesman. I will say that the huge pictures and maps outside the theater room were kind of cool, but ironically that was the free part, and it didn't really make up for the rest of my "experience." So while there were a couple things I enjoyed, there wasn't enough to make it worth the money, and I don't think I'll be going back.
The theatre is a great way to see Alaska if you're not going to spend a month there. They have Alaskan movies that provided an overall picture of Alaska, the Northern Lights and Wildlife. The best deal is the combo deal which includes the 1964 Earthquake and remembering what happened 50 years ago. The 4th Avenue Market Place is also a neat place for visitors to view the placards and pictures of artists and artisans in their Gallery walkways.
I had an amazing time at the Alaska Experience Theatre! Watching movies that I have never had the chance to see on the big screen and seeing them as an adult was wonderful. They had an especially great selection of films for the month of October to celebrate Halloween. They have a nice selection of beer and hard cider for people of age to drink during the movies that makes it even more fun. I would definitely recommend the Alaska Experience Theatre!
For some reason my boyfriend bought this groupon for $10/person. We saw an earthquake video, as well as, the journey to alaska... I fell asleep and the earthquake video was old, but informative. The simulation of the earthquake happened twice and was OK. I wouldn't come here again and I wouldn't recommend. ZzzzZZzzz
