I am wondering whether John Eberson did anything for this theatre except inspire the architect.I have found an article which states that the theatre was designed by the architect Auguste Bluysen and the decorator was Maurice Dufrene.

Actually,RobertR,there was another theatre here in Melbourne which when it first opened in December 1964 was called the My Fair Lady theatre for the screening of that film and then changed it’s name to the Palladium Theatre.These are the only two examples that I know of,but there were probably others.

I believe one the remodelings was done by John Eberson,most likely in the 1930’s.

In answering Warren’s query of 13 December it appears the auditorium was being used for storage of supplies in 2000.I imagine the auditorium was still intact.I discovered the information from the following website,www.desiwriter.com/clip_aftermath.html
Maybe someone in New York could check it out.

atmos commented about Embassy Theatre on Jan 13, 2005 at 10:14 pm

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.

atmos commented about Embassy Theatre on Jan 12, 2005 at 8:26 pm

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.
