With the prospective buyers of the Roanoke Rapids Theater expected to get loan approval to close on the property, a special meeting of city council has been called for Monday to discuss the matter.

Both the city and the potential buyers of the Roanoke Rapids Theater wanted to fix a date for the end of the due diligence period which could lead to the sale of the venue, City Attorney Gilbert Chichester said today.

Roanoke Rapids City Council received a closed-session briefing on the progress being made to strike a final contract with the potential buyers of the theater.
