The historic Kessler Theater opened in 1942 and was once owned by Gene Autry. It closed in the 1950s and was hit by a tornado in 1957. It even served as a revival tabernacle for a short time. After sitting dormant for 30 years, it was resurrected as a live music and events venue in 2010.
Nestled in Dallas' popular Bishop Arts District, the Kessler Theater's art deco exterior has stunning visual stopping power.
