Return to the 80s as Karate Kid Comes Back to Theaters Next Month


The summer of 1984 is one of those legendary movie years filled with impossibly good things: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, the simultaneous release of Ghostbusters and Gremlins, plus Star Trek III and Purple Rain and …The Karate Kid!

A young kid from New Jersey, living in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley, bullied and unhappy — until he meets a martial arts master.  The movie was THE KARATE KID from director John G. Avildsen, whose Rocky had won Best Picture eight years earlier … and THE KARATE KID has been a movie favorite ever since.

Today, Fathom Events and Sony Pictures are excited to announce that in honor of its 35th anniversary, THE KARATE KID will return to movie theaters nationwide for two days only this spring, followed by the film’s release on 4K Ultra HD.  THE KARATE KID will play in movie theaters on March 31 and April 2, offering the chance to experience the movie’s enormous spirit on the big screen for this milestone 35th anniversary.  What’s more, the theatrical presentation will include a sneak peek at the upcoming Season 2 of the YouTube series “Cobra Kai.”
