1997 Japanese animated film Perfect Blue (パーフェクトブルー) in Pittsburgh, September 6, 7, and 10.

The 1997 Satoshi Kon film Perfect Blue (パーフェクトブルー) will play in Pittsburgh-area theaters from September 6, part of a nationawide presentation by AX Cinema Nights to mark the movie's 25th anniversary and a "Satoshi Kon Fest" that will bring additional Kon films here in the fall and spring.
Anime Expo Cinema Nights invites you to revisit PERFECT BLUE, the groundbreaking and rarely screened first film from the legendary director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Paranoia Agent), as it returns to theatres for its 25th anniversary. Rising pop star Mima has quit singing to pursue a career as an actress and model, but her fans aren't ready to see her go... Harboring feelings of guilt and haunted by visions of her former self, Mima's reality and fantasy meld into a frenzied paranoia. As her stalker closes in, in person and online, the threat he poses is more real than even Mima knows, in this iconic psychological thriller that has frequently been hailed as one of the most important animated films of all time.
It will play locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and the Cinemark theater in Robinson, and tickets are available online. The screenings on September 6 and 10 are in Japanese with English subtitles, while the screenings on September 7 are dubbed in English.
