Monthly movie: Gangster Squad

After a close vote, Les Mis finished top of the poll but some people voted for Gangster Squad in the comments and not the poll, so Gangster Squad has just come out on top!


It's a 40's LA mafia story with Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling, and people have requested a 6.30 show, of which there is one at the Islington VUE, one of our regular cinemas. So we'll meet from 5.45 in the upstairs foyer opposite the pop corn kiosks- I'll mail my contact details on the Friday and a reminder to book a ticket online if you want to be sure of a seat; the cinema's website is here. Depending on numbers, after the film we'll go to either the small-but-quiet Nags Head pub or one of the more spacious-noisy ones.

Hope to see you there!

    While the movie itself seems to have lacked a lot that hte movies which inspired it (L.A. Confidential, The Untouchables), it still brought out a lot of cool and interesting people to a night at the movies. Hope to see everyone again soon.

      Do it online. Click on the word "here", in red in the description above, scroll down to Gangster Squad, click on the 18:30 showing, choose your ticket type, choose a seat, enter payment details, Bob's your uncle.

    80 people attending! Wow. I may come to see Gangster squad. l don't need to worry about getting a seat, l'm a wheelchair user haha

      I'd imagine less that half will be there- for the vote movie people tend to intend to come then the film they wanted doesn't win and they decide last minute not to- so I'd expect about 40-45... which is still quite a few!

    Hello everyone .. am done with my booking in row H (last seat ! in this row)..
    Looking forward for my first event with your group.

    January 11, 2013

  • Greg

    Looks like row H is going quick :) H6 here.

    January 9, 2013

  • Paula

    If we book our tickets in advance online doesn't this mean we'll all be sitting separately, as seats are allocated in advance?

    January 9, 2013

    • Greg

      Yes I was thinking about this also, unless we meet early and try and all book together? Trouble is as it's a new release seats might go quickly

      January 9, 2013

    • Gabriel

      Yes, we generally don't end up sitting together if the tickets are allocated seating; if people want to sit together its probably best to book online and post here what row you've selected or get there early on the day and book together, though this does run the risk it may already be sold out. Either way we'll meet in the foyer before and after the film
