Community activists have launched a campaign to persuade council chiefs to step in and save the former Odeon cinema.

The historic B-listed building in Clerk Street has lain empty since it closed seven years and its condition is deteriorating.

Now Southside Community Council is calling on the council to instigate compulsory urgent repairs to make the building wind and watertight and begin proceedings to compulsorily purchase the property.
