In March of 2010 Oak Cliff’s The
Kessler Theater re-opened it’s doors after more than 30 years to provide a unique concert venue for both local and internationally known talent.
The Kessler has an interesting history. It originally opened in the Spring of 1942 then was purchased by Gene
Autry in 1946. It sold again in the 1950’s and a variety of owners and
uses followed. The Kessler was nearly destroyed
by a tornado in 1957 and then again by a 3 alarm fire a few years later. Prior to re-opening in 2010, the last city
recognized use was in 1978. In March of
2014, just four years after re-opening, The Kessler was listed on the National
Register of Historic Places.
But that’s just some of the history…
Today the fully remodeled Kessler serves as a concert venue
for top notch local talent along with some well-known names including 10,000 Maniacs, Ray
Wylie Hubbard and Asleep at the Wheel.
