Isabella Rossellini is about to pay another visit to the Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center in Patchogue. The actress, who has been a staunch supporter of the theater located near her home in Bellport, will host a screen of her latest film, "Problemista," at Plaza on March 29 at 7:30 p.m.

The movie stars Julio Torres as an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador who comes to New York City and has to deal with an eccentric artist's widow who agrees to sponsor him. Adding to the young man's problems is that his work visa is about to expire. Rossellini narrates "Problemista," which was also written and directed by Torres. Rossellini will then appear in a Q&A with the audience after the film.

Tickets are $65 and can be purchased at

The event is the latest of several appearances Rossellini has made at the nonprofit cinema. In 2013, she attended a showing of the 1942 classic "Casablanca" starring Humphrey Bogart and her mother, Ingrid Bergman, and then talked about the film. Two years ago she returned to host a showing of the animated movie "Marcel the Shell With Shoes On," in which she voiced the title character's grandmother.
