If you can believe it, it's been 35 years since The Karate Kid kicked its way into theaters.

The Karate Kid spawned sequels, remakes and most recently a YouTube series, Cobra Kai, that was so well received they're doing a second season.

You can tell the nostalgia for The Karate Kid is strong so Fathom Events is bringing it back for only two days (March 31 and April 2) and yes, it'll be in Rockford.

This event will also include a custom introduction from Ralph Macchio and William Zabka and a Cobra Kai Season 2 Sneak Peek.


Tickets are now on sale for AMC Showplace 16 showings of The Karate Kid 35th Anniversary.
