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!

I recently saw The Moody Blues at the Embassy Theater in Fort Wayne, IN. What an overwhelmingly beautiful place!! I cannot imagine seeing them in a better place. Get there early and take it all in.

My fiance and I were here to see Jim Gaffigan in March 2014. The theater is beautiful and an envy of my camera lens taking photo after photo of everything from the baseboard molding to the chandeliers. The employees were very quick and helpful as well as courteous which was hard to do with so many people crammed into a... More

Beautiful, majestic theater. We've been to a couple of the silent film showings this year. They played the famous organ and it was really something you can't duplicate. We've been to a couple of live shows there as well. Really a special venue! The only problem to be aware of are the really small, close together seats.
