Top Chinese movie of 2018, Operation Red Sea (红海行动), continues in Pittsburgh through March 21 (at least).


The highest-grossing movie in Mainland China this year, Operation Red Sea (红海行动), will continue in Pittsburgh for at least a fourth week, through March 21. The Chinese-Hong Kong film, currently #2 movie in Mainland China behind Black Panther, opened at the AMC Loews Waterfront theater on February 23. The production company provides a synopsis:
The Chinese Navy’s Jiaolong (“Sea Dragon”) Assault Team is famed for its skill in getting the job done. After its success in rescuing a cargo ship hijacked by pirates off the Somalia coast, the team is assigned an even more perilous mission. A coup in a North African republic has left local Chinese residents in danger, circumstances further complicated by a terrorist plot to obtain nuclear materials. The situation could prove fatal to the hostages and disastrous to the entire region, and presents Jiaolong with a challenge that threatens the very existence of the team and its members.
Tickets and showtime information is available via Fandango. 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.
