The Odeon in Sheffield city centre has announced they have closed their doors - but it shouldn't be for too long.

Odeon Sheffield, on Arundel Gate, has announced it will be temporarily closed whilst it undergoes 'extensive refurbishment.

The former Fiesta club has promised to offer customers the 'very vest in cinema entertainment following its transformation into Odeon Luxe Sheffield.

A spokesperson for Odeon said: "Every seat on every row in your new Odeon Luxe Sheffield will be expertly designed for you to relax and recline during your film. With less seats and more personal space, you'll have a more immersive experience with every visit.

"In the short time we are closed you can still see all the latest releases at Odeon Mansfield and Huddersfield.

"We will keep you updated with all the latest news on your Odeon Luxe Sheffield opening...we can't wait to welcome you back soon."

The cinema has promised that Odeon Luxe will offer a 'wide range of treats for all tastes' with tables built into the seats.

Odeon will also be launching Oscar's Bar which will provide an extensive range of drinks.

The cinema has faced increased competition for customers since The Light opened on The Moor last year.
