The Embassy Theatre- Fort Wayne, IN

The Embassy in downtown Fort Wayne is a stunner. They also get great Broadway shows and concerts (and now, for the 2008-2009 Broadway season, you can enjoy fine dining in the Indiana Hotel Lobby before the show). Mrs. WYA! is a Fort Wayne native so she's been there quite a bit but still gawks at the beauty of the place. It started in 1928 as the Emboyd with The Indiana Hotel attached to it. In 1972, with only 2 days to spare, enough money was raised to save it from the wrecking ball. We can't begin to express our gratitude to everyone who works to save places like this and then keeps them going.

The Festival of Trees was going on when we were there last but you can still see how exquisite the lobby is. You can also see how beautiful the Grande Page Pipe Organ is.
