Visited this historic landmark on 'Be a tourist in your own hometown', second Sunday in September. A number of local attractions, museums, zoo are free admission from 12-5pm. Every September second Sunday! This theatre is in the national historic landmarks, for good reason! It was opened in 1928 but looks as grand today as when it opened. ART DECO style!... More

Beautifully restored!!! Great views from every seat in the house. Prefer the balcony because I am short and can look down on the entire stage from the balcony. This is an old theater; consequently, there is not much leg room for taller patrons. Theater is always beautifully decorated for Christmas. Sky walk from parking garage To the theater.

If you find yourself in Ft Wayne you need to plan it to be during a Rock Show at the Embassy. You can basically touch the band

I have attended events at this facility since I was a child. Have seen everything from The Philharmonic Symphony to Broadway shows to the comedian Gallagher. The space is so beautiful. I am awed every time I sit in the theater. A majestic place.

I love the embassy! It's so lovely. Saw Jay Leno and loved him. I usually go to 4 or 5 showed a year. Great sound, great view and great shows.

I heard back in the 70's this place was 3 days away from demolition and was saved from the wrecking ball at the last minute. Thankfully it survived and I couldn't imagine Fort Wayne without the embassy. Elegant and historic, home of everything from philharmonic orchestra to nationally known stand up comedians. Look up their schedule of events and find... More

Had a great night at the Embassy. All of the seats were great. I'm not sure there is a bad seat in the house. Beautiful place. I can only imagine how cool a wedding would be there.

There are always great things going on at the Embassy...The FW Philharmonic, plays, comedy acts, musical acts, etc. I saw Aritha Franklin, Rent, and RiverDance there in the distant past. Some years ago, the Embassy was remodeled. The decision was made to keep its historic flavor an install seats designed for last century's body types. Thus, if you are full... More
