The Streamline Moderne 4th Avenue Theatre was opened on May 30, 1947 with a Gala opening and opened to the public on May 31, 1947 with Larry Parks in “The Jolson Story”. It was a first run movie house for the next four decades. When it opened, the opulent theatre seated a combined 1,100 patrons in its balcony and main floor.
In the mid-1980’s, the city of Anchorage began restoring the theatre and, later, it was taken over by the catering firm, Glacial Reflections. The company used it as a banquet and special events venue that fits between 500-700 people. It was shuttered for several years and was demolished in December 2022.
