Excellent for concert and plays. Old theatre feel and look. Historic venue in the city of Ft Wayne. Close to hate and restaurants.

Old building that has been beautifully restored. Staff is always polite and helpful. Sound quality is very good and they book popular acts at reasonable prices. Most seats are great including the balcony.

My opinion: pay to park in the garage (adjacent to Embassy) and then use cross walk (in inclement weather).

Among the most beautifully restored buildings I've seen, and here it sits in Ft Wayne, IN! Came to see "The Texas Tenors" in concert and even they commented on what a great theatre it was. Worth seeing on it's own with NO performance scheduled. That grand opulence, of a by-gone era, lives on here. The acoustics were wonderful. I'll be... More

The theater has been impeccably restored and the hotel now functions as reception and meeting space. Whether you are there for a Fort Wayne Philharmonic concert or a Broadway show, the theater provides an amazing and elegant experience. In addition for receptions... More

GooGoo Dolls concert- great scenery, beautiful building, wonderful layout. My husband and I attended a GooGoo Dolls concert and was pleasantly surprised by the acoustics, seating, light display and overall comfort of the theater.

You'd be hard pressed to find many theaters that are more elegant in an old-world, grand style. It is truly a beautiful place, with reasonable acoustics and decent sound. The only mark against is that the seats are really crammed in tight, so it's not as comfortable as you might hope.

My wife and I went to the theater because our grandson was in the all state middle school choir. What a beautiful theatre. The place reminds me of the grand old days of vintage America, with ornate, intricate designs and meticulous detail. Even the interior lights were a site to see. Even some top entertainment comes to this place such... More
