Surprise - Journey to the West (万万没想到:西游篇) currently at AMC Waterfront.

The 2015 Chinese comedy Surprise - Journey to the West (万万没想到:西游篇) is currently playing at AMC Loews Waterfront. A plot summary, from the official site:
Surprise follows the day-to-day misadventures of a character called Dachui Wang as he navigates though various modern and classic situations.

The little monster Wang Dachui, who was born with sharp ears & simple magic, made him different from the ordinaries. The local monster king, he thought he was. But to his surprise, on the one hand, his fate has changed since the encounter with Tang Monk, Monkey King, Piggy & Sand Monk. On the other hand, the meeting with Wang Dachui also should have been the great 82nd disaster to the four.
The movie was released in the US on December 18, and Pittsburgh is one of 17 cities in the country to carry it. The theater is also currently screening the 2015 Chinese movie Mojin - The Lost Legend (鬼吹灯之寻龙诀).

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.
