Avildsen (Rocky, The Karate Kid, The Power of One) explains how Philadelphia serves as the perfect backdrop for some of his most notable films. “People from all around the world come and run up the stairs. It was all because of those two scenes in Rocky.” To Avildsen, Philadelphia is full of history, character and beautiful buildings. “It’s a very American city.”
