VENTNOR Arts Club is flying the flag for arthouse this week, with a jam-packed programme featuring two live satellite broadcasts and a screening of an Aretha Franklin documentary.

Today, Ventnor Arts Club is screening documentary, Amazing Grace, at 7.30pm.

It’s described as the closest thing to witnessing a miracle — just some cameras, a crowd and a voice touched by God.

The film is a documentary about Aretha Franklin and the Southern California Community Choir in Los Angeles, captured on camera in 1972.

On Tuesday, at 7pm, the club is showing a live satellite broadcast of Matthew Bourne's dance show, Romeo and Juliet.

The passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict is set in the not too distant future, where young people are mysteriously confined by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirit and individuality.

The show tells the timeless story of forbidden love, repressed emotions and teenage discovery, filmed live at Sadler’s Wells in London especially for cinemas.

On Wednesday, the club is screening American comedy, Booksmart (15), at 7.30pm.

In Olivia Wilde's directorial debut, two academic superstars and best friends, on the eve of their high school graduation, suddenly realize that they should have worked less and played more.

Determined never to fall short of their peers, the girls set out on a mission to cram four years of fun into one night.

On Thursday, the club is showing a live satellite broadcast of Don Pasquale, live from the Royal Opera House, at 7pm.

Royal Opera favourite, Bryn Terfel, heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations.
