Rise of the Machine Girls (爆裂魔神少女 バーストマシンガール) to close Pittsburgh Japanese Film Festival, April 2.

Tickets are now available for Rise of the Machine Girls (爆裂魔神少女 バーストマシンガール), which will close the fifth annual Pittsburgh Japanese Film Festival at the Row House Cinema on April 2.
Join us for Closing Night of the 5th Japanese Film Festival. We’re closing it out Brew & View style, which means you get beers served to your seat throughout the show! The night will kick off with a compilation of Japan’s whackiest TV game shows (back by popular demand from JFF 2019) and then we’ll watch the Pittsburgh Premiere of RISE OF THE MACHINE GIRLS.

Rise of the Machine Girls (2019)

In the reboot of the cult feature, The Machine Girl, comes a high-energy action film about sisters Ami and Yoshie living in a future Japan. The two make a living by performing in fight shows, but their skills are put to the test when captured by an organ-trafficking ring.
Tickets for the 7:00 pm and 9:55 pm shows are available online, with the rest of the festival's lineup to be announced shortly. The single-screen theater is located at 4115 Butler Street in Lawrenceville (map).
