The mission of the not-for-profit Embassy Theatre Foundation, Inc. is:
- to preserve and operate one of Indiana’s largest historic theatres and restored Indiana Hotel Lobby
- to provide and present quality programs for the cultural enrichment of its patrons
- to provide a facility and performance center for use by presenters and civic, arts, educational and service-oriented organizations as well as corporate and individual functions
- to reflect excellence, innovation, and leadership.
What We Do
The historic Embassy Theatre features national productions from the Broadway stage, concerts of all musical formats, cinema, educational programming, and a continued commitment to young people.
Our Special Events
As the perfect backdrop to every event, the Embassy hosts weddings and receptions, corporate functions and cocktail mixers in multiple spaces, including the Indiana Hotel lobby, Embassy Theatre lobby, ballroom and the Parkview Health rooftop patio. Additional meeting rooms and spaces are available for business gatherings.
The Embassy is sustained by theatre rental from these national tours and community-based productions, individual and corporate memberships, donations, special event rentals, show sponsorships and gifts from foundations.
Our Building Renovations
With generous support of local foundations, members and donors, the Embassy Theatre completed the installation of the Embassy marquee and the vertical blade sign, the renovation of the HVAC and cooling system, the restoration of the Hoosier room, the renovation of the ladies lower lounge, the replacement of the grand entryway doors and the repair of the water damaged sub-basement and foundation. The Indiana Hotel renovation included the creation of a two-level ballroom and the Parkview Health rooftop patio.
With an eye to the future, the Embassy Theatre asks for your continued support of this historic treasure and the cultural opportunities celebrated within.
With thanks to narrator Thomas Mathiesen, the Embassy proudly offers an audio-visual history of its first 90 years.
