Last night, at a warehouse space in downtown, movie buffs celebrated the upcoming release of the L.A.-centric gangster movie "Gangster Squad." The film stars Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling, and centers on the story of Mickey Cohen, a member of the Jewish Mafia in the 1940s, as he tries to take control of Los Angeles.

The after party reflected the spirit of the film with girls dressed in vintage dresses, custom-painted old school cars and art celebrating the Southland.

Oh, and the In-N-Out truck.

The movie will hit theaters in January of 2013.
