Gen X Cinema: The Karate Kid
7/11/2018, starts 7:00 PM

The GenX Cinema series presents the 1984 family film, “The Karate Kid,” starring Pat Morita and Ralph Macchio, on Wednesday, July 11, at 7:00 pm at the Soper Reese Theatre in Lakeport. Entry is by donation.

This exciting, sweet-tempered, heart-warming story, with one of the most interesting friendships seen in a film in a long time, is directed by John G. Avildsen who also directed “Rocky.” Pat Morita is simply terrific, bringing the appropriate authority and wisdom to his part as the Yoda-like karate instructor, a part for which he won an Academy Award nomination. Ralph Macchio delivers a sympathetic and believable performance as Morita’s teenage student who desperately needs a way to put down the school bully.

The film is rated PG with run time of 2 hours 2 minutes, and is sponsored by Leather Feathers.The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577,
