Lunch & Movie- Gangster Squad

How about the drama Gangster Squad (Starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Sean Penn and directed by Ruben Fleischer) at AMC River East 21 in Streeterville? We'll eat lunch at La Fournette (French/Bakery/Sandwiches) in Old Town before going to the theater at 322 East Illinois St to watch the movie in the early afternoon.

Synopsis from the Gangster Squad site:
"Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart."
