Conan the barbarian

My ten year old Dungeon & Dragons playing self was enthralled with the 1982 sword and sorcery epic CONAN THE BARBARIAN starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Earl Jones. Wow has forty years passed by already?! Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the film, Fathom Events and Universal Pictures are bringing the original 1982 CONAN THE BARBARIAN back to movie theaters for a two-night engagement this December.

Following his parents’ savage murder, young Conan (Schwarzenegger) is captured by the cold-blooded Thulsa Doom (Jones) and spends the next fifteen years in agony, first chained to the Wheel of Pain and then enslaved as a Pit Fighter. Rather than allowing this brutal fate to conquer him, Conan builds an incomparable body and an indomitable spirit—both of which he needs when he suddenly finds himself a free man. Aided by his companions Subotai the Mongol (Gerry Lopez) and Valeria, Queen of Thieves (Sandahl Bergman), Conan sets out to solve the “riddle of steel,” seize ultimate power and, finally, take revenge on the warlord who killed his family.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN will be at select theaters on December 12 and 13, 2022. Visit for more information.
