Mayor Mark Coulton said of the purchase - "This acquisition is not only important for the for the future operation of the Roxy Theatre as a successful conference and event venue but is also significant for the heritage and cultural value of the building as the current Chinese restaurant was part of the Roxy, operating as a Greek cafe and this will be recaptured by Council in this development."
" Negotiations are underway with the Greek Community to establish a 1936 genre Greek cafe."
