2022 Japanese animated film Suzume (すずめの戸締まり) returns to Pittsburgh, October 27.

The 2022 Japanese animated film Suzume (すずめの戸締まり), which played in Pittsburgh in April and May, will return October 27 through (at least) November 1.
On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety— “Suzume” is a coming-of-age story for the 17-year-old protagonist, Suzume, set in various disaster-stricken locations across Japan, where she must close the doors causing devastation. Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwestern Japan) when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob… Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.
It plays locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and tickets are available online. Please note, some screenings are dubbed in English while others are in Japanese with English subtitles.
