Uptown Chicago: Ready For Our Close-Up

Another video from David Stratis, highlighting Uptown's cinematic history. "For those who may have seen these highlights in the longer history animation originally posted on the Magnolia Malden Neighbors web site, a new soundtrack has been added, and it has been edited down to show some of the more interesting highlights of this exciting piece of neighborhood history.

Below are two Essanay movies, filmed by the Argyle Street Studio, that also feature new soundtracks:
Below is the Charlie Chaplin movie filmed at Uptown Chicago’s Essanay Studios:
On November 19th, Chicago rock band “Joan of Arc” performed a new commissioned soundtrack to this classic piece of cinematic history in the former Essanay Studios sound stage. (now home to St. Augustine College, at 1345 W. Argyle Street in Uptown.)"
