Papa (洛杉矶捣蛋计划‬) in Pittsburgh, from March 18.

The 2016 Chinese movie Papa (洛杉矶捣蛋计划‬) will receive a limited North American premiere on March 18 and will play at the AMC Loews Waterfront. A summary, from the distributor:
A bumbling Chinese talent manager flies to LA in pursuit of his escaped singer, but winds up with five adopted kids and an important lesson in life.

The relatively unheralded movie with a cast of unfamiliars has the misfortune of playing in Pittsburgh the same time as Mountains May Depart (山河故人), the Japanese Film Festival, and Coffin in the Mountain (心迷宫) at the CMU International Film Festival.

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.
