Sheffield will soon have its newest city centre when The Light opens in The Moor on April 14.

And it will join the latest in a long line of venues where Sheffield moviegoers have flocked to watch the latest cinema hits over the decades.

We've dipped back into our archives to pluck out some pictures of the city's cinemas of bygone days - from the much-missed Classic in Fitzalan Square to the Gaumont in Barker's Pool, they're all here.

There's also the bygone ABC and the futuristic 80s Odeon to remember - see how many of these favourites you can recall in our retro picture gallery.

And there's video footage dating back to 1961 when the ABC first arrived on the city's cinema scene.
