Description

Built as the Emboyd Theater in 1928 as a movie and vaudeville palace, the Historic Embassy Theater has been the stage for some of the country's most famous performers. Perry Como, Louis Armstrong, Tony Bennett, Doris Day, Marilyn Maxwell and many more vaudeville acts contributed to 25 years of fame for the Emboyd. When the rise of modern cinema brought about the sale of the Emobyd, local enthusiasts contributed to preserving the freshly named Embassy Theater.

The Embassy gained new fame for Buddy Nolan's efforts to preserve the 4/15 Page Theatre Pipe Organ by playing an annual Theatre Organ at Midnight concert which drew sellout crowds. When the theater faced demolition , local volunteers began the organization that still maintains the theater as a major venue for touring performers and local functions. The annual Festival of Trees is a highly anticipated event to raise money for the theater's restoration. For one week in November the majestic lobby is filled with Christmas trees, becoming an indoor winter wonderland.
