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....
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.
As with all geek events, we request a $1 donation to cover meetup fees, snacks and prizes for future events.
2 Strike Attendance Policy
Since many of our events fill up and have waiting lists, we enforce a “Two Strike” attendance policy. If you are a “No Show” or a “Late Drop” (dropping less than 6 hours before an event) it will count as a strike. After two strikes you are subject to removal from the group. So please only sign up for events that you know you can attend and update your RSVPs in a timely fashion if your plans change.
