Kizumonogatari Part 2: Nekketsu (傷物語II 熱血篇) at Hollywood Theater, from October 22.

The Hollywood Theater in Dormont will have three screenings of the 2016 Japanese animated movie Kizumonogatari Part 2: Nekketsu (傷物語II 熱血篇) on October 22, 23, and 25.
The movie's official site has a plot summary:
In the spring of his second year of high school, Koyomi Araragi met the beautiful vampire
Kiss-shot Acerola-orion Heart-under-blade.
Koyomi saved Kiss-shot, who was on the verge of death with all four of her limbs cut off,
but only at the expense of becoming her minion and a vampire.

“In order to go back to being a human again, you must take back all of Kiss-shot’s limbs.”
After receiving advice from Meme Oshino, an expert in the supernatural,
Koyomi prepares to go into battle.

Awaiting him are three powerful vampire hunters—Dramaturgy, a giant vampire hunter who is a vampire himself. Episode, a half-vampire who wields an enormous cross, and Guillotinecutter,
a quiet man who specializes in killing vampires.

Will Koyomi be able to take back Kiss-shot’s limbs from the vampire hunters?
Amidst the soft spring rain, the curtain rises on this fateful blood bath…

The Hollywood Theater is the only place in Pennsylvania showing the movie this fall, and played Kizumonogatari Part 1: Tekketsu (傷物語Ⅰ 鉄血篇) in February. Tickets for the three shows, which will be in Japanese with English subtitles, are available on the theater's website by clicking the calendar tab. The theater is located at 1449 Potomac Ave. in Dormont (map), and is accessible by Pittsburgh's subway/LRT at a block south of Potomac Station.
