Jackie Chan movie Police Story: Lockdown (警察故事2013) at Parkway Theater in McKees Rocks, June 5 - 7.

The Jackie Chan movie Police Story: Lockdown (警察故事2013) will play at the Parkway Theater in McKees Rocks from June 5 through June 7. The movie was released in China in 2013, but will be released internationally on June 5. A plot summary from a Variety review:
Police captain Zhong (Chan) is called to an aggressively hip underground club by daughter Miaomiao (Jing Tian), who walked out on him six months earlier. Finding her dangling from the arm of owner Wu Jiang (Liu Ye, “The Last Supper”), whose diabolical grin and tank of pet piranhas are the epitome of shady, Zhong launches the first of his many self-righteous lectures — on Miaomiao’s goth getup, her tattoos and her dodgy b.f. — but she lashes back, blaming his workaholic ways for her mother’s untimely death. They are interrupted by a suicide-bomb crisis, which turns out to be just a prelude to the real trouble: Wu has lured everyone to his hive in an elaborate kidnapping plan.
According to Facebook, the movie will start at 7:00 pm on June 5, at 6:00 pm on June 6, and at 5:00 pm on June 7. The theater is located at 644 Broadway Ave. in McKees Rocks (map), a few miles west of the North Side.
