The Embassy Theatre restoration reclaims a 1931 Art Deco movie house, sole-remaining entertainment edifice from bygone Queen City life, that has now become a multipurpose center for allied arts. With original motifs re-applied to maintain authenticity, the Embassy renovation was featured on Bob Vila's "Restore America" for HGTV. Thanks to enthusiastic patrons who have lent support and donations, the Embassy Theatre is able to offer an eclectic repertoire of classic film art and live music, theatre and dance. Local historical dramas are also presented. Call 240 362-7183 for current schedules and to make reservations, or visit the Embassy lobby's Passport Cafe.
