Japanese children's film Poupelle of Chimney Town (映画 えんとつ町のプペル) in Pittsburgh, from January 6.

The 2020 Japanese animated children's film Poupelle of Chimney Town (映画 えんとつ町のプペル) will play in Pittsburgh from January 6. A synopsis, from the distributor:
Poupelle of Chimney Town is the story of young Lubicchi living among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town, yearning to see the “stars” — to know the truth — his father always told him about. One Halloween night he meets Poupelle, a man made of garbage, and together they look to the sky as their adventure begins. Spectacularly beautiful, filled with inspiring performances and splendid music and sound effects, and produced at Tokyo’s famed STUDIO4ºC, Poupelle of Chimney Town brings laughter, tears and joy.
It plays locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and Cinemark theater in Robinson. Tickets are available online, but note that some shows are dubbed in English while others are in Japanese with English subtitles.
