AUBURN — The former law offices of Dennis Sedor at 108 Genesee St. look like a war zone. Drywall has been punched through, cords dangle out of the walls and debris litters the floor.

It’s a somewhat familiar sight for the directors of Auburn Public Theater.

Scheduled to open in the space next spring is Sun Café, a coffee shop and restaurant that will connect to the neighboring theater and support it financially. Previously called Café Einstein, it’s half of a $1.2 million project that also includes the renovation of the theater’s 13,000-square-foot basement into a black box theater and a multipurpose space for stand-up concerts, weddings and other uses.
