FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The Embassy Theatre 2023 organ and silent film events will take place May through August 2023. Additional organ shows may be added later in the year.

The Embassy offers patrons a unique and historic experience like none other! Whether you desire to focus on the Grande Pape pipe organ on its own or alongside iconic films from a century past, this lovely and melodic instrument is showcased by an array of talented organists who specialize in highlighting its thrilling music and sound effects.

The Grande Page pipe organ (4-manual, 16-rank) is lovingly maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers, and has for the past century, drawn organ fanatics—at times, party train-cars full of them—to hear this magnificent instrument played, by some of the greats—including our beloved Buddy Nolan. We hope to honor this history and invite the community to join us as we re-visit silent cinema classics and feature organists Dave Wickerham, Clark Wilson and Cletus Goens, who will lend context to the films and music at each event.

The Embassy box office is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and two hours prior to each performance. For Fort Wayne Philharmonic performances, the box office is open one hour prior to each performance. The Embassy Theatre observes the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. The box office will be closed on these holidays. The Embassy Theatre strongly encourages guests to purchase tickets via www.fwembassytheatre.org or www.TicketMaster.com.
