"Movies Were Better"
A uniquely Alaskan, original, one-of-a-kind, mini-Poster
Maybe it's those long Anchorage nights, or because Alaska is so far away from the rest of the United States, or maybe it's both.
When you live in Anchorage, you get out into the great outdoors, but you also love movies, dining out and enjoying live music or plays.
Did you ever go to an outdoor concert on the longest summer day?
How bout a fun evening at the 4th Avenue Theater?
Or did you have a favorite Anchorage band?
From going to see a drive-in movie to dancing the night away to the sounds of a popular band, Anchorage residents have great memories of their favorite forma of entertainment in Anchor town.
And whether you were in a band, loved hearing one play, or you were an actor in local plays or really enjoyed attending plays in local theaters, you have wonderful memories of those great times.
My family and I were involved in producing some local plays, but we also went to lots of dances at Shindig City and the Cheetah teen night clubs during the 1960s.
Even though winters started to get long and cold, we always found something fun to do.
The Anchorage Entertainment Memories on this page are all posted here by people who either still live in and around Anchorage, or did once upon a time.
You'll love reading these cherished memories almost as much as those who posted them to preserve and to share them.
While those who live in Alaska, and especially in and around Anchor town, know all too well how far they are from the "lower 48" or "lower 49" including Hawaii. But that not only doesn't stop Anchorage folk from finding lots of things to do.
Alaskan movie makers wrote and produced movies to entertain not only Alaska, but the world. Musicians in Alaska's largest city are second to none and provide great music day and night. And stages all across town host incredible entertainment from wonderful plays to fun shows of all kinds.
