Rurouni Kenshin 3: The Legend Ends (るろうに剣心 伝説の最期編) in Pittsburgh, October 4 and 5.

The 2014 Japanese movie Rurouni Kenshin 3: The Legend Ends (るろうに剣心 伝説の最期編) will play at Southside Works Cinema on October 4 and 5. The distributor has a synopsis of the third installment of the trilogy:
After his confrontation with Shishio ends in defeat, Kenshin Himura awakens at the home of his old Master. With his mind set on revenge, he trains day and night to learn the final technique of his deadly fighting style. While he builds up his strength, Shishio and his army attack the coastline and force the new government to name Kenshin a wanted man. With the world closing in on him, Kenshin will have to look inside himself to find the strength he needs to protect his friends and end Shishio’s reign of terror once and for all. As the two ex-assassins prepare for their final fight, the wanderer with the back-blade and a bloody past will learn which force truly drives him—his will to live or his killer instinct.
The trilogy had a limited release in the US this fall; Rurouni Kenshin 2: Kyoto Inferno (るろうに剣心 京都大火編) played in the South Side on September 13 and 14. Tickets are currently available online via the theater's website. The theater is located at 425 Cinema Dr (map), accessible by city busy 75 and University of Pittsburgh shuttle 30C.
