The Karate Kid premiered in 1984 to both critical and commercial acclaim. Listed in Entertainment Weekly’s Top 50 of the “Best High School Movies” ever made, the film, directed by John Avildsen (Rocky), captured the thrill of the underdog and inspired thousands of young kids. The movie made a star out of Ralph Macchio, who will share his experience and behind-the-scenes stories with fans in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see it on the big screen and hear from the Karate Kid himself. Macchio’s film and television career also includes Eight is Enough, The Outsiders, Crossroads, Ugly Betty, Entourage, and Dancing With The Stars. The Karate Kid brand continues to endure with numerous sequels, including The Karate Kid 2 starring Jaden Smith.
