Some showings at The Light cinema on The Moor were temporarily interrupted after staff rushed into screens and asked customers to leave.

The evacuation - which took place at around 3pm yesterday - was caused by a fire alarm at the Debenhams department store next door. Normal service was resumed soon afterwards.

Replying to a customer on Twitter, a representative for the cinema chain said anyone affected is free to return and reuse their tickets to watch a film undisturbed.

"You can reuse your tickets for any showing of your choosing," they said. "There's no time restrictions and if you'd like to talk to a manager about any further compensation or issues please do so on your next visit."

Those caught up in the incident can also email sheffield@lightcinemas.co.uk for assistance.
