Embassy Theatre Fort Wayne Indiana

Recent Project

Embassy Theatre Expansion

A two-story ballroom, located on the sixth and seventh floors of the former Indiana Hotel, is the centerpiece of the $10 million project. In addition to the ballroom, a new Parkview Health Rooftop Patio offers a stunning view of downtown and a new venue for performances by local musicians. The renovation also adds the Journal Gazette Foundation Learning Center on the fifth floor featuring five new conference/classroom spaces, a new box office, lobby bars, mezzanine lounge, board room and artist dressing rooms.
