Our Time Machine (时光机), Donut King continue online via Tull Family Theater.

The Tull Family Theater in Sewickley, which will close to in-person patrons from December 12 through January 4, will continue to screen Our Time Machine (时光机) and Donut King in its virtual cinema. The 2019 documentary Our Time Machine (时光机) opened at the theater on November 6th; a synopsis from the film's official site:
Shaken by the news of his father’s dementia, artist Maleonn creates “Papa’s Time Machine,” a wondrous time-travel adventure performed on stage with life-size mechanical puppets. Through the play’s production, he confronts his own mortality. Maleonn finds grace and unexpected joy in this moving meditation on art, the agonies of love and loss, and the circle of life.
And the Alice Gu documentary Donut King opened on October 30; from the official site:
Ted’s story is one of fate, love, survival, hard knocks, and redemption. It’s the rags to riches story of a refugee escaping Cambodia, arriving in America in 1975 and building an unlikely multi-million-dollar empire baking America’s favorite pastry, the donut. Ted sponsored hundreds of visas for incoming refugees and helped them get on their feet teaching them the ways of the donut business. By 1979 he was living the American Dream. But, in life, great rise can come with great falls.
Ticket information is available online, and 50% of the proceeds will go to support the theater.
