The Historic Fort Wayne Embassy Theatre recounts the rescue fromdemolition and subsequent restoration of Fort Wayne's largest movie palace andvaudeville house. Lavish and ornate, the theatre is famous for its Grande Page PipeOrgan. Installed when the theatre was built in 1928 -- with more than 1,000 pipes --it is one of only four instruments of such magnitude to be built by the Page OrganCompany of Lima, Ohio. Faced with the loss of a truly beautifuland rare historical landmark, local activists joined together in the early 1970s toestablish the Embassy Theatre Foundation, which purchased the theatre and faithfullyrestored it as a performing arts center and venue for Broadway shows. Much to thedelight of patrons, "Miss Page" continues to be played at concerts, silent movies, and the theatre's Festival of Trees. Generously illustrated with color photos of thetheatre and attached Indiana Hotel, this book is sure to appeal to theatre and musiclovers, architectural and urban preservationists as well as regionalhistorians.
