VENTNOR Botanic Garden will host the outdoor screening of the classic 1986 musical comedy, The Little Shop of Horrors (PG), tomorrow (Saturday).
The story centres on a nerdy florist who finds his chance for success and romance, with the help of a giant man-eating plant, which demands to be fed. 
Starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin, John Candy and Bill Murray, the film is the fist of a weekend double bill by The Extraordinary Travelling Film Show, which has brought classic movies to Island landmarks.
The Garlic Farm, Newchurch, is the setting of a screening of the Neil Jordan horror, Interview With the Vampire — The Vampire Chronicles (18), on Sunday (14).
A vampire, played by Tom Cruise, tells his story of love, betrayal, loneliness and hunger. Brad Pitt and Antonio Banderas also star.
For both screenings, admission is 7pm, with the feature starting at 8.30pm.
David Coultas, of The Extraordinary Travelling Film Show, said: "The season has gone well and all of the events have been popular, especially the screening of Frozen. 
"The screening at Ventnor should be a wonderful night as it’s in the middle of the beautiful garden. Also, a theatre company will be coming in costume and performing a scene from the show."
