“The Stranger,” starring Orson Welles’, helped define the movie genre known as film noir, and The Park Theatre, 19 Main St. in Jaffrey, will present a restored version Friday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m.

Immediately following World War II, ex-Nazi Franz Kindler (Welles) is living under a false identity as a teacher in a small Connecticut town and has even married the headmaster's daughter (Loretta Young) as part of his cover. But when one of Kindler's old German associates (Konstantin Shayne) arrives unexpectedly in town, bringing in his wake a sly federal investigator (Edward G. Robinson), Kindler resorts to desperate measures to preserve his secret. 

Tickets are $10, $9 for seniors, children, students, teachers and active military. They can be purchased at the box office or in advance online at theparktheatre.org. The box office telephone number is 603-532-8888.
