Embassy Theatre

<p>The arts are alive and well in Fort Wayne and the Embassy Theatre is one of the best places to spend a night out on the town. In 1928, the theater was opened as a movie palace and vaudeville house. Some of the brightest stars of the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, graced the stage at the Embassy back in its early days. In 1972, it narrowly escaped destruction, but was soon after reinvented as Fort Wayne's premiere place for theatre, music, and town festivals. The theater even gives a nod to its roots by continuing to screen silent movies, providing the soundtrack with its 100-year old pipe organ.</p>


<p>The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo is one of the shining stars of this Midwestern city. Since 1965, it's been bringing children and adults face to face and hand to hoof, paw, and claw with animals from around the world. Over the years, the zoo has grown from 18 exhibits spread out over 1.5 acres, to a world full of habitats that give animals space to roam and relax. The zoo, and the community that supports it, is incredibly active when it comes to conservation efforts, and works hard to preserve biodiversity for generations to come.</p>
