FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Following countless hours of work and $10 million in renovations, the Historic Embassy Theatre is set to debut its brand new ballroom along with several more spaces now ready for the public’s viewing.

The Embassy Theatre began it’s Indiana Hotel renovation project, A Vision for the Embassy in the spring of 2014. During that time, construction crews removed 700 tons or 1.4 million pounds of debris to make way for the transformation.

After nearly two years, the Embassy Theatre added a two-story ballroom on the sixth and seventh floor, a rooftop patio, rehearsal classroom spaces, learning centers, offices and new bar area in the lobby.

The Embassy Theatre is offering the first of its kind rooftop area in downtown Fort Wayne.

“Just knowing the impact that after the renovations would have on the community and then coming in and taking a 1928 building and basically doing a lot of demolition and taking it down to the bones and then watching it come back together. New mechanical systems, new structure, new finishes, it’s got a lot of great new features, but at the same time, we brought it back to, it looks like it was in 1928 after the big renovations, we brought it back to its historic nature,” Larry Weigand of Weigand Construction said.

The Embassy Theatre is hosting a community open house on March 30 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
