The largest of Fort Wayne’s movie palaces, the Emboyd Theatre, opened on May 14, 1928 with a seating capacity of 2,970. It was renamed the Embassy Theatre in 1952. After twenty more years of struggling, the theater could no longer operate on movies alone and closed.
In 1972, the Embassy Theatre Foundation purchased the theater to save it from demolition and conversion into a parking lot. The theater was finally renovated in the early 1990’s for stage shows and returned to its original shine. It reopened in 1996 as a performing arts center and venue for Broadway shows.
