MOVIES

‘The Karate Kid’

Wax on, wax off, wax nostalgic. “The Karate Kid” is returning to theaters, fully restored in 4K from the original camera negative, ahead of its 35th anniversary. The box office hit earned Pat Morita, a longtime Las Vegan, his only Oscar nomination as the iconic Mr. Miyagi. “Karate Kid” stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, currently headlining the YouTube spinoff comedy series “Cobra Kai,” filmed a new introduction for the event. See it Sunday and Tuesday at Colonnade, Orleans, Red Rock, Sam’s Town, Santa Fe, South Point and Village Square.
