Opened in 1926 for the Marks Brothers circuit, the Embassy Theatre stood on Fullerton Avenue at Crawford Road (later renamed Pulaski Road). By the 30s and into the 50s, the Embassy was operated by the Essaness chain.
After closing as a movie theater, the building reopened as a ballroom in 1957, which remained in business until 1981. It was followed by a brief stint as a rock concert venue as well as a short revival of ballroom dancing, but closed permanently in 1984. The Embassy was demolished in the late 1990s and an Osco drugstore was built on the site.
