Aptly described as a ?flexible proscenium theatre?, the Sydney Laurence Theatre is a venue in the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts that is perfectly designed for hosting film, theatre, and chamber music performances. It has a modest stage and a seating capacity of about 340.

Established in the late 1980s, the Sydney Laurence Theatre was named after Sydney Laurence, a well known painter who is best remembered for his works with Alaskan landscapes. He moved to the state in 1904 in search for gold, and also prospered with his painting. He is also best known for his work of the Mt. McKinley, which is now a part of the Smithsonian Institution?s National Collection of Fine Arts.

Composed of two levels (orchestra and mezzanine), the Sydney Laurence Theatre is a really special venue that folks can visit or rent.
