2016 movie The Monkey King 2 (西遊記之孫悟空三打白骨精) continues at AMC Loews Waterfront through February 17.

The Monkey King 2 (西遊記之孫悟空三打白骨精), a 2016 release from Hong Kong will continue to play at the AMC Loews Waterfront through, at least, February 17. ScreenDaily provides a summary in a January 29 review:
Freed after 500 years beneath Five Element Mountain, Wukong is tasked by the Goddess Guanyin (Kelly Chen) with shepherding young monk Xuanzang (William Feng) on his journey west to retrieve ancient spiritual sutras that will pacify the Earth. They are joined by a pair of similarly disciplined creatures: the water-dwelling Wujing (Him Law) and the gluttonous half-man, half-pig Baije (Xiaoshenyang). When the party arrives at a wealthy Silk Road kingdom, they hear stories of a malevolent demon who has been kidnapping and eating children. The pure-spirited Xuanzang is then himself targeted by the seductive yet deadly White Bone Spirit, Baigujing (Gong Li), who feeds on the innocent to retain her own youthful beauty..
The Monkey King 2 opened in Pittsburgh on February 5, one day before it premiered in Hong Kong, and three days before it premiered on Mainland China.

The movie will play in Mandarin with English subtitles. Tickets and showtimes are available at the AMC Loews Waterfront website. The theater is located at 300 West Waterfront Dr. in the Waterfront shopping complex in Homestead (map), across the Monongahela River from Greenfield, Squirrel Hill, and the rest of Pittsburgh.
