2016 Chinese movie My Best Friend's Wedding (我最好朋友的婚礼) in Pittsburgh, from August 12.

Update 08/11/16: Pittsburgh screenings cancelled.

The 2016 Chinese movie My Best Friend's Wedding (我最好朋友的婚礼) will play at AMC Loew's Waterfront from August 12. TheBeijinger summarizes this remake of the 1987 American movie, which opens in China on August 9, the date of this year's Qixi Festival:
The new version sees Shu Qi, who plays an editor of a Chinese fashion magazine, jetting about Europe, attending fashion week in Milan and getting up to wedding shenanigans in London.

Like the original, the Chinese remake follows two childhood friends after one of them announces he’s getting married to a young rich woman who has been studying in the UK.

Suddenly realizing that she's actually in love with him, Shu Qi’s character vows to stop the wedding at all costs. When she’s invited into the bridal party, things get even more complex.
Tickets and showtimes will be available at the AMC Loews Waterfront website next week. 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.
