Portrait of Jennie will screen from an archival 16mm print.

‘This poignant love story focuses on struggling artist Joseph Cotten as he gradually falls in love with Jennie (Jennifer Jones), a strange young woman he meets in Central Park. As Cotten occasionally encounters her over a series of months, she seems to be maturing before his eyes - and he slowly comes to realize that his muse is the restless spirit of a long-dead woman.’ American Cinematheque
