More than 4000 residents across the city have signed up to a campaign to save the former Odeon cinema.

Southside Community Council, which is fighting for the historic B-listed building to be restored and reopened as a cinema and arts venue, started the petition about four weeks ago.

A total of 4283 people have put their names to the online and paper versions, both of which were to be handed over to city council leader Jenny Dawe by Edinburgh boxer Alex Arthur at the City Chambers today.
