See a crime drama, "Gangster Squad" Friday at 7:30PM for $1.50 admission -- that's right, a BUCK-FIFTY! Tropicana Cinemas is located in the lot behind the Rebel station on the northwest corner of Tropicana and Pecos with plenty of well-lighted parking. I'll be there at 7:15PM -- please try to arrive then so we can all be seated together -- find the old gangster with the grey beard inside the building, near the theatre (numbers one through six) where the movie is showing. Note that food and drink brought from outside is not allowed in the building. Optional meeting to socialise afterward at Putter's, thirty yards away.
Based upon the true story of mob-boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) who ran drugs, guns, prostitutes, and gambling in post war (1949) Los Angeles until taken down by the secret, brutal "Hat Squad" led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling) of the LAPD.
