A guilty pleasure and a high point of the 1980s sword-and-sorcery craze, Conan the Barbarian provided Arnold Schwarzenegger with one of his beefiest roles. Scripted by director John Milius and Oliver Stone from a series of pulp fantasy stories by Weird Tales scribe Robert E. Howard, the film is arguably too self-aware to qualify as camp, but that doesn't mean you can't have a chuckle at its expense. The Nuart is breaking out a 35mm print for its long-running Cine Insomnia series. There is no strict dress code, but animal skins and metal-studded leather bracelets are encouraged.
