Campaigners fighting to restore the former Odeon Cinema in Clerk Street to its former Art Deco glory are celebrating after it was upgraded to an A-listed building.

The move by heritage group Historic Scotland, which means the property is now deemed of national importance, has strengthened calls for it to be returned to use as a cinema, according to supporters. But developer Duddingston House Properties (DHP), which bought the Odeon in 2003, said the listing would not necessarily make any difference to its plans.
