Historic Fun

A beautiful historic building! Take time to look around and notice the details! Not a bad seat in the house! Restaurants/Parking/Hotels/Attractions only a block or two away!

Historical, refurbished, beautiful theater for performances. You have to be patient during admission, breaktime, and exiting, as the traffic flow gets quite congested. Instead of getting bogged down in the crowds, to retrieve snacks and drinks - it may be more enjoyable to just enjoy the performance. A great show – - and enjoy the evening.

The Embassy was classy and beautiful. I attended a leadership conference there and now I'd love to attend a concert there. It is beautiful. I think they may be doing a renovation or expansion soon, so that would be neat to see.

If you want to see the grand architecture of the 19th century completely restored, you must attend an even here. We love to sit on the main floor, not a bad seat in the house. Look around while you are there and be amazed at the beauty.

The Embassy Theater is a wonderful historic venue with beautiful design details inside. The auditorium is not huge, which is nice because you pretty much get a decent view no matter where you sit. There is a parking garage nearby for parking. It is also located a stone's throw away from the Botannical Conservatory, which is another great place to... More

We saw Ben Folds here of a Friday night. What a beautiful theater and what a great show! We can't wait to return to another event at this downtown gem! Looking forward to what the renovation will reveal. Great job Fort Wayne!
