4th Avenue Theater in Anchorage, Alaska

Anchorage, Alaska

BUILT: 1941 (finished 1947)
OPERATION TIME: 1947 to present


The 4th Avenue Theater’s construction began in 1941 but was not completed until 1947 due to a halt during the course of World War II. Once finished, it was a 960-seat, first-run theater up until the 1980s. It has been used as a banquet facility and a meeting space over the years.

Today, the theater harbors the spirit of a woman. Her apparition has been spotted in the long mirrors that are hung between the men’s and women’s restrooms. The cause of the haunting is unknown.
