‘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.

Heidi Knapp Rinella
Having bought his first guitar for 12 pounds when he was 15 and scored a publishing contract a year later, British expat Paul Gurvitz is a true rock ’n’ roll lifer. He’s jammed with Cream drummer extraordinaire Ginger Baker, among many others, and is perhaps best known for his time with rockers Gun and their proto-metal hit “Race With the Devil.” All these years later, he’s still at it.
