News About This Theater
The Embassy Theatre was opened on October 17, 1927. After years as the crown jewel of movie theaters in Lewistown, the 1970’s saw the Embassy Theatre’s fortunes nose-dive and it finally shut its doors in 1981.
Ten years later, as the Embassy Theatre stood by waiting for a savior, the Friends of the Embassy Theatre was organized in 1991 to save this classic theater from being lost forever.
The Embassy Theatre is currently raising money to repair its marquee and its interior in hopes of being brought back to life as a performing arts center for the Pennsylvania town. In the early-2000’s, the Embassy Theatre restored its box office and front doors.
