The Embassy Theatre is a historically significant, beautifully restored structure in the heart of Fort Wayne. It hosts plays, concerts and other activities. Acoustics are very good and the seats are comfortable. They also do wedding receptions there although the use of two floors may not be the best for this type of gathering. It is always a delight to... More

The Fort Wayne Philharmonic uses the Embassy as their "home concert venue" and we saw the kick off concert for the new Pops Series. So grateful that this venue was saved and restored a couple decades ago when it was facing the wrecking ball.

This is a beautiful restored historic theatre located in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. We recently went to a Johnny Mathis concert in this theatre, and loved the architecture of the building. The renovations inside are awesome! The acoustics and sound from Johnny's concert were superb. If you ever have the chance to visit this building, take advantage of the opportunity!

The party venue is newly renovated, but can't say it's a good venue as it's on two floors so guests on second level are isolated and feel alienated. Had a great time and the party, but I would not plan an event here.

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
