Karate Kid Event

THE DALLAS FILM SOCIETY PRESENTS: SPECIAL BLOCK PARTY SCREENING FOR THE YMCA'S
AFTER SCHOOL ALL-STARS

The Dallas Film Society has brought the YMCA's After School All-Stars program,
The Crow Collection of Asian Art, and the City of Dallas together to co-present
a world class event for some very fortunate youth. A private event featuring a
block party complete with face painters, martial arts exhibitions, arts and
crafts was followed by an exclusive screening of Columbia Pictures new film
THE KARATE KID. The Dallas Film Society was instrumental in securing a Physical
Fitness Proclamation from the City of Dallas. This was presented by City
Officials to Jaden Smith ("Dre Parker"), Jackie Chan ("Mr. Han") after they and
other stars and special guests walked the red carpet on Thursday, May 27 at 4:30
PM at Cinemark Movies 17 (635 and Webb Chapel - 11819 Webb Chapel Road, Dallas,
TX 75234).

In Columbia Pictures' THE KARATE KID, 12-year-old Dre Parker (Jaden Smith)
could've been the most popular kid in Detroit, but his mother's (Taraji P.
Henson) latest career move has landed him in China. Dre immediately falls for
his classmate Mei Ying - and the feeling is mutual - but cultural differences
make such a friendship impossible. Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of
the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate,
and Cheng puts "the karate kid" on the floor with ease. With no friends in a
strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan),
who is secretly a master of kung fu. As Han teaches Dre that kung fu is not
about punches and parries, but maturity and calm, Dre realizes that facing down
the bullies will be the fight of his life.

THE KARATE KID opens nationwide on Friday, June 11, 2010.
