This cinema was the last place I saw a 35mm screening to date, ‘One Day’ in August 2011 in one of the smaller screens. It was the last Odeon in the country to be fully converted to digital in November that year.

The Roxy next door to the Fiesta Club (Now Odeon Cinemas) was originaly opened as The Top Rank Suite in the mid 1960’s so was a dance hall, not a night club. Rank took over the running of the Fiesta Club before it closed. Eventually, they converted it into Cinemas, retaining the Fiesta name at first, then changing it to Odeon when the new Cross Burgess Street Odeon twins were to close.
The original Sheffield Odeon building (Bingo since 1971) is situated next door to the Roxy, which by the way is now the Sheffield Carling Academy.

It has to be said that this is a lacklustre cinema even by multiplex standards, and is rumoured for closure and redevelopment in the near future.
