DALLAS — After sitting empty for nearly three decades, the Kessler Theater is re-opening its doors next month.

Edwin Cabaniss, an Oak Cliff businessman, bought the art deco-style building last year and has spent the past seven months restoring the crumbling structure.

This is the fifth building he’s restored in Oak Cliff. “It’s just a beautiful building, and it just needed a little bit of polishing up,” he said.

Cabaniss has spent thousands turning the 1942 edifice into a music hall that can hold nearly 350 people.
