Watching a movie gives audiences a chance to capture that moment’s resonant je ne sais quoi, which is French for “popcorn smell.” Rejoice in artful concessions with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get a cult classic four-movie package for two at Alaska Experience Theatre (up to a $56 total value). Movie packages include:

  • Two tickets (up to a $5 value each) to each of the following movies:
  • Pulp Fiction, running from November 3 to November 7
  • Say Anything, running from November 10 to November 14
  • Raising Arizona, running from November 17 to November 21
  • Shaun of the Dead, running from November 24 to November 28

  • Two popcorns per movie (a $1 value each)

  • Two sodas per movie (a $1 value each)

Showtimes for each movie are 4 p.m., 7 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. during their run dates.

The curators at Alaska Experience Theatre project Alaskan documentaries, cult classics, independent films, and wide-release block-busters onto a 40-foot backdrop inside a renovated 96-seat theater. Pairs of pals, dates, or congressmen can fix peepers on the crystal-clear images of November’s selected movies, which thrill theatergoers with flicks such as Quentin Tarantino’s cult favorite Pulp Fiction, and the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead. To pay homage to Hollywood stars, Nicolas Cage and John Cusack—both of whom are stationed in Anchorage filming The Frozen Ground—the movie house will show Cage’s classic Raising Arizona and Cusack’s silent film Say Anything. During each flick twosomes devour popcorn and drinks, keeping otherwise noisy mouths subdued and unable to shout spoilers at the audience. Though not included with today’s Groupon, the theater’s selection of wine and beer pleases of-age palates.

Alaska Experience Theater

The most popular films at the Alaska Experience Theater covers a monumental moment in area history: the devastating Good Friday Earthquake of March 27, 1964. After learning about the quake's massive power in the adjoining museum, viewers enter an earthquake simulator, shaking along with hydraulic tremors as a brand new documentary drives home the quake's destructive scale.

The Alaska Earthquake Experience is just one of the various short documentaries on Alaskan history and lifestyle screened at the theater throughout the year. In the 96-seat main theater, a 40-foot screen commands attention. The theater displays longer documentaries along with cult classics, independent films, and wide release blockbusters. In addition to hosting these screenings, the theater can also be rented out for use in weddings, conventions, or other memorable events.

The Alaska Experience Theater's dedication to lively historical learning also extends outside of its walls. Out in the marketplace, two permanent exhibits reveal more information about the earthquake and display the full collection of prints by Alaskan artist Fred Machetanz.
