Daniel LaRusso just can't get a break. After moving from New Jersey to California with his mom, Daniel struggles to fit in at school, and becomes the target of a gang of bullies, but then an unlikely hero appears: elderly maintenance man Mr. Miyagi. Under Miyagi's tutelage, Daniel learns self discipline, focus, and martial arts: but is it enough to win the Karate tournament Daniel's bully is favoured in? When it came out in 1984, THE KARATE KID was a sensation, making Ralph Macchio an iconic teen heartthrob, and Pat Morita earned an academy award nomination for his role of Mr. Miyagi, and more recently the Netflix series Cobra Kai rekindled love for this iconic movie.


Infinitely quotable, THE KARATE KID became a cultural phenomenon and the inspiration for a generation of kids to learn karate. Come join us at Throwback Cinema as we learn again where karate truly resides. --CRYSTAL-ROSE MADORE
