News release from the Embassy Theatre:
Video highlights Embassy renovation project and the challenges of working in a historic space
(May 1, 2015) – The Vision for the Embassy project which started during the summer of 2014, continues to move forward in the former Indiana Hotel at the Embassy.
The Embassy has contracted with Punch Films to document the renovation. Throughout the project, videos showing different facets of the construction will be posted to the Embassy website. “Much of the construction takes place inside the building, so these videos allow us to share our progress with the community as well as document this historical activity,” said Kelly Updike, Embassy executive director.
This video documentation is sponsored by Weigand Construction, which also is the construction firm for the Vision for the Embassy project.
The first video features the challenges of working in a historic facility.
The Vision for the Embassy campaign has raised $7.67 million with an ultimate goal of $10 million. If you would like to contribute to this project or are interested in naming rights to the new spaces, contact Steve Linsenmayer, development director, at 260.424.6287, ext. 240.
