New life is coming to an historic theater on Buffalo's east side.

The Varsity Theater on Bailey Avenue will open its doors for the first time in more than a decade on Thursday. Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul will be one of several local officials on hand for today's grand opening festivities.

The theater was recently purchased by local entrepreneur Ibrahim Cisse.
