The Sydney Laurence Theatre is a flexible proscenium theatre, perfectly suited for theatre, film and chamber music. It has an ample stage (94' wide by 27' deep with a proscenium opening of 47' wide by 21' high) and a seating capacity of approximately 340.

The asymmetrical seating arrangement in the Laurence Theatre, with open boxes on the sides, creates a strong dramatic effect. The twilight palette of blues, grays and mauves is reinforced in the seating upholstery, designed by Alaskan resident Hugh McPeck, entitled Forest Floor.

Sydney Laurence (1865-1940) was the foremost painter of Alaskan landscapes. He came to Alaska in 1904 in search of gold and found painting to be more productive. His large canvas of Denali (Mt. McKinley) is part of the Smithsonian Institution's National Collection of Fine Arts. The Anchorage Museum of History and Art has an entire gallery dedicated to his work.

The Sydney Laurence Theatre seats approximately 300 and consists of two levels (orchestra and mezzanine).
