The Karate Kid, starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita and Elisabeth Shue, is the story of a teenage boy, Daniel, who moves to California from New Jersey with his mom but has a hard time fitting in. He soon becomes the target of local bullies who are all adept in karate. Daniel seeks the help of his neighbor, Mr. Miyagi, a grand master of martial arts, to learn karate so he can better defend himself. The Karate Kid has been rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America.
Prior to the movie, the audience will be treated to the sounds of All Young Girls Are Machine Guns, the award-winning brainchild of ukulele-wielding, bow-hunting, beating-of-the-drum-type misfits.
