Lucky Grandma (幸運的奶奶) available online via Parkway Theater.



The 2019 Chinese-American movie Lucky Grandma (幸運的奶奶) is playing online via the Parkway Theater in McKees Rocks, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the single-screen theater. A New York Times review provides a synopsis:
Cantankerous and fiercely independent, the 80-year-old Grandma Wong (Tsai Chin) wants to live by herself in her Chinatown apartment in New York. Her son, Howard (Eddie Yu), wants her to move in with his family to save on rent. Encouraged by a fortune teller’s promise of imminent luck, she takes all her savings to a casino only to find herself — after some hilariously absurd twists — with a bagful of a dead man’s cash and a pair of gangsters on her tail.
Tickets are available for purchase online.
