atmos commented about Embassy Theatre on Jan 14, 2005 at 12:14 am

The Australian publication from which I found the Embassy Theatre did mention the architects as Hoffman-Henon so it definitely seems to be an earlier name for the Warner.I thought I had found another atmospheric.Thanks to everyone for their input.

Having added this theatre and not having been to the US,except for New York,you are confusing me.This theatre was an atmospheric and the one listed on Philadelphiabuldings.org is the correct one and its location is listed as Arkansas Ave and Boardwalk.It looks like it may have opened in 1928.

Texas Theatre opened on 25 Nov 1929 and closed in 1985,however it did reopen briefly in 1994.I discovered a website celebrating the theatre’s 75th anniversary and from the photos the auditorium looks to be in fairly good condition.

I neglected to mention that this theatre was an atmospheric,the first built in the prairies.
In reply to sam_e,the original theatre was demolished however it does appear that the Capitol 4 is located on the same site.
