Documentary Mifune: The Last Samurai at Parkway Theater, from December 16.

The 2016 documentary on actor Toshiro Mifune, Mifune: The Last Samurai, will play at the Parkway Theater in McKees Rocks from December 16. From a November New York Times review:
“Mifune: The Last Samurai” is a celebration of the originality and influence of the Japanese star Toshiro Mifune (1920-1997), shown as a rare actor capable of the subtlest stoicism and the wildest bravado. It’s a brisk and energetic primer for those who don’t know his movies or are ready to watch them again. And it doubles as a history of the chanbara (sword fighting) genre, providing an opportunity to sample clips from seldom-seen or partially lost silent films.
There will be two screenings on the 16th---7:00 pm and 9:00 pm---and four more on the 17th (4:00 pm), 18th (6:15 pm), 27th (7:30 pm), and 28th (7:30 pm). The theater is located at 644 Broadway Ave. in McKees Rocks (map), a few miles west of the North Side.
