This theatre will remind you of times of a theater you went to years ago. Has been very nicely converted like it was. Many concerts, and movies Check out the old pipe organ below the stage. Many stars have appeared here past and now such as Bob hope

(was really Feb 2013, but the drop down stopped at March) - I've been here several times for concerts - it's a great venue. Love the old look of the place. It's beautiful. They need more restrooms and more leg room in the seats. If you're over 5'9" be sure to get an isle seat or one in the front... More

Our visit to the Embassy was a very nice surprise! Having never been to a historic theater of this size we were impressed with the quality of sound even in the balcony. The Fort Wayne Philharmonic was impressive as well and the evening was worth every cent we paid. The Embassy is a beautiful landmark that we wish we'd experienced... More

Love this place but I do not like the seats. I am 6'4 and unless you get seats on the floor up front you will not be comfortable. Pay the extra money its worth it. I am glad they have great national rock bands as well as other music at this location

The Embassy is a magnificent, fully restored theatre from days gone by. Programming runs the full range from classical music to top name entertainers and everything in between. My only complaint (really an observation) is they are lax on allowing latecomers in once a program has begun - and cell phone texting during performances is a BIG problem. I am... More

Every year we go to the Holiday Pops at the Embassy. The music is wonderful, and the singing and the special treat of the ballet... the Embassy itself is just something to experience. The detail work and the history just shine. I have been to concerts here, seen comedians, even reruns of old movies... it is an amazing place. Keep... More

We attended the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Christmas Pops. Because of a snow storm we couldn't attend the original date we had planned but the theater gave us new tickets for the next weekend. They were very acommodating and we appreciated that. I have to admit that I wasn't too thrilled at the idea of listening to a bunch of Christmas... More

I've always enjoyed going to the Embassy. Nearly always super entertainment reasonably priced. It's a big old showcase place, I'm sure it's a challenge to keep it fresh and in good repair. Visit, you won't be disappointed with the theater itself. Our most recent visit however was a real disappointment. It might be time for the Embassy to consider STRONGLY... More

This is a GREAT place to take in a show or concert. Years ago many of the larger employers in town held their Christmas parties for their employees here. Many of the past entertainers have been here. The "Festival of Trees" is held here and is worth the money. Entertainment here has declined over the years but the beauty of... More

Third week of movies out there for 6 bucks. Snacks are expensive. Seating is old but reasonably clean. Sound and picture quality is not first rate.
