Incredible art deco interior with such great detail.

This is so wonderful. To save the great art deco interior for the bookstore. Classy approach. Most retail business would not be this sensitive to an historic building. Colors and design inside is quite handsome.

Ceiling treatment is so art deco. Rounded corners and looks like indirect lighting. Subtle design.

Great art modern exterior. Post art deco. Box office is wonderful and marquee too. So classic.

I hope the rounded box office was not changed. Very retro and handsome. Line of kids right out of Father Knows Best or Leave It To Beaver. Great pic. Chrome palace!

I would like to see the interior of this small town gem. It is obviously in need of repair but has a lot of style anyway.

Two dramatic deco structures. Aqua or teal paint on theatre is perfect for original time period.

The most beautiful and elaborate theatre in Seattle. Still wowing the city every day!

paulnelson commented about Embassy Theatre exterior on Jul 11, 2014 at 1:09 am

This is what I remember of this theatre. 2nd run films. 3 features often. Horror, Science Fiction and later Porno for years. Now a restored auditorium and live entertainment. Cheers to the Embassy. Who would have thought it would have come back from the dead.

A dramatic art moderne/art deco masterpiece. Tragedy it is gone. What a waste!

Must have been handsome at one time. Now a confusing mix of styles and colors. Should be restored.

This elaborate and dramatic theatre should be saved and promoted. Historic work of cinematic design.

Interesting photo. Is the figure on the right a statue?

French design elements? Ceiling light designs are fantastic. Whole theate should be restored. Timeless historic value for Chicago and the world.

What a handsome building. Lighting and marquee and stone and hardware holding the marquee up is beautiful. Sort of Frank Lloyd Wright feeling to it.
