Lobbies & Spaces

Grand and elegant – an apt description for the lobbies and spaces of the PAC. Some feature vast height and glorious light, while others offer delightful surprises at every turn.

Unparalleled Anchorage Event Spaces

In addition to state-of-the-art theatrical spaces, the PAC is home to breathtaking lobbies, an elevated skybridge, a swanky patron lounge, and a flexible black box performance space. Let us pair the ideal space with your event vision!

Lorene Harrison Lobby

The Lorene Harrison Lobby provides entrance to the Evangeline Atwood Concert Hall, our largest theatrical venue. There are bar service locations on each level accessing the theatre.

The architecture and interior design of the lobbies were created to replicate bright Alaskan summers, even in the darkest months. The colorful lobby carpet (a floral display titled Arctic Poppies designed by local artist Nancy Taylor Stonington) and the tall forest green columns climbing four stories create an enjoyable park-like setting. Large, ceiling-high windows allow sunlight to stream into these glorious spaces.

Staff Tip: With multiple levels and spaciousness, this space is great for receptions and community events!
