The Karate Kid

AUGUST 12 & 15

The ORIGINAL from director John G. Avildsen (Rocky). Audiences and critics alike cheered this classic underdog story about a teenage boy (Ralph Macchio) who takes up karate. To win respect—and the girl (Elizabeth Shue)—he must face the school bully who belongs to the take-no-prisoners dojo “Cobra Kai.” Noriyuki "Pat" Morita earned an Oscar nomination as Macchio’s instructor, who has his own unique teaching methods. (“Wax on, wax off.”)
