Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

The Historic Fort Wayne Embassy Theatre recounts the rescue from demolition and subsequent restoration of Fort Wayne’s largest movie palace and vaudeville house. Lavish and ornate, the theatre is famous for its Grande Page Pipe Organ. 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 Organ Company of Lima, Ohio.

Faced with the loss of a truly beautiful and rare historical landmark, local activists joined together in the early 1970s to establish the Embassy Theatre Foundation, which purchased the theatre and faithfully restored it as a performing arts center and venue for Broadway shows. Much to the delight 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 the theatre and attached Indiana Hotel, this book is sure to appeal to theatre and music lovers, architectural and urban preservationists as well as regional historians.


“This book will be of great importance to regional historians, as well as fans of stage performance, pipe organs, and preservationist efforts everywhere.” –Thomas Castaldi, author of Wabash and Erie Canal, Notebook III: Wabash and Miami Counties


“[This book] will deepen even the casual patron’s appreciation for the place of the theater in the region’s history.” –Indiana Magazine of History, June 2011 Indiana University Press


“The photos alone make the book. It helps Indiana take its rightful place as a great state of music and theatre lovers.” –Donn P. Werling, Executive Director, Allen County/Fort Wayne Historical Society


“… a lovely and important keepsake for those interested in Fort Wayne’s history…. stunning visual quality and well-researched stories.” –, July 29, 2009
