Odeon Sheffield entrance

Odeon Sheffield is a multiplex cinema located at Arundel Gate in Sheffield city centre, South Yorkshire, England, adjacent to the city's O2 Academy.

It is operated by Odeon Cinemas, and has 10 screens. Screen 1 is the largest, having 252 seats, and is also the only to feature 3D capability. Both Screen 4 & 5 have the smallest amount of seats at 113.[1]

The building itself was built in the 1970s as the 'Fiesta' nightclub, and played host to such acts as The Jackson Five, The Beach Boys and Stevie Wonder.[2] Opening as 'Odeon 7' on 5 March 1992,[3] the cinema had seven screens before it expanded into what was previously the 'Showroom' in 1994 (not to be confused with Sheffield's Showroom Cinema).[4]

Sheffield had another Odeon cinema at Barker's Pool until 1994, on the site of what is now the 'Embrace' nightclub.
