Beautifully maintained. I've been several times for shows, conventions, and even one time for a tour. They have a really impressive pipe organ.

Missed Jackson when he came to Cleveland in September. First time visiting Fort Wayne. The Embassy Theater is a wonderful restored venue. The floor seating is great since each row is raised quite a bit from the row in front. Acoustics were very good. Nice places to eat dinner within walking distance. There is a beautiful cathedral just across the... More

The 4 Lads from Liverpool put on a Great Show..! If you get a chance to see them you will not be disappointed. They are travelling all over. The $37 ticket was worth twice the price. The show was long and excellent. They sand around 40 songs. Julia Baird was on hand as well. Thanks to the Embassy and sponsors... More

This is an excellent place to watch a performance. I was in the 14th row, but even the very back seats have an excellent view. Theater is like a trip back in time, but with modern sound and lighting. Concessions were priced well -$5 for tub of popcorn - better than the movie theater.

Attended a remarkable concert by the Ft Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra, the sound was beautiful, the hall was beautiful, the staff was great, there wasn't a single thing that could have been better. I've been in the building before, for the festival of trees last Christmas, and that was nice also.

This is one of the most beautiful, historic theatres I've seen! We had side seats for a 1 man show & it was not a detriment to be off-center. We could see & hear just as well as a central seat. It is good-sized, but still felt intimate for the show.

As always, a beautiful and peaceful theatre. Open for the public to enjoy during "be a tourist in your hometown" with organ playing and friendly staff eager to show you around and answer any questions. Can't wait for the Christmas season, embassy theatre is a do not miss during the holiday season!!

This is not only a historic structure, it is an absolute architectural gem. It has been beautifully preserved and restored where necessary from the balcony to the Page organ. It hosts everything from classic films, to concerts, to broadway plays to Festival of Trees at Christmas.
