$5.00 Geek Movie - Gangster Squad

Per the request of some members I am scheduling another $5.00 movie night to see Gangster Squad.  This testosterone filled shoot-em-up adventure stars Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone.

We will be seeing this at Southpoint which offers $5.00 movies all day on Tuesdays!

We are seeing the 7:20PM show at Southpoint Cinemas and meeting at 7:00PM to go in to the theater and get seats.

Since this is a week night, we will probably not be going out afterward to eat unless someone would like to organize something.  There are a bunch of places to eat right outside the theater, including getting cheesecake and the Cheesecake Factory....

Synopsis:
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. "Gangster Squad" is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD's efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.

    A fun, typical, shoot-em-up gangster film with lots of action and guns. That was what I was expecting and for $5.00 I was satisfied. Thanks for coming out everyone.

    Had fun, film was good but nothing groundbreaking, though solid performances were delivered by all. For that, I recommend it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
