, Backlot Bash 2016! Oakton St, btwn Lincoln & Laramie Ave adjacent to the Village Hall, Skokie, 847-674-1500 ext. BASH (2274)
! Fri 6-10p, Sat 11a-10p and Sun 12N-8p Oakton St will be closed from Fri 10a till Sun 12M,
The name “Backlot” pays tribute to downtown Skokie’s (then Niles Center’s) heritage as a silent picture western back lot set between 1907 and 1915. Chicago’s Essanay Studios, the MGM of its day, frequently used Skokie because its dirt roads, saloons and wood frame buildings resembled an old prairie town. Essanay used this area frequently for shooting movies featuring gunfights, bank robberies, and cowboy and Indian skirmishes. In 1915, the Niles Center Theater (now Skokie Theater) opened and residents were finally able to see the very westerns that they had watched being filmed here. Essanay was the home of stars such as “Bronco Billy” Anderson, Ben Turpin, Wallace Beery, Gloria Swanson — and in 1914 and 1915 — Charlie Chaplin.

CH. 11 PBS TV Great Performances: Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story
A history of
Stax Records: (More info)

Between 1959 and 1975, Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee released international chart-topping hits such as "Soul Man," "Dock of the Bay," "Green Onions," "Midnight Hour," "Respect Yourself," and the theme from SHAFT. The label's artists included Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Booker T. & the MG's, Rufus and Carla Thomas, the Staple Singers, Isaac Hayes, and even Richard Pryor and Jesse Jackson. Founded by a white conservative bank teller who played country fiddle music, Stax became the preeminent soul music label in America, and became identified with the civil rights movement of the 1960s and '70s. RESPECT YOURSELF documents the Stax label, its visionaries, and most of all, its music.
