Earlier this month, we recognized 26 members of our staff as recipients of the 2015 Arbor Star Award. They were all chosen because each one embodies the Arbor Service Way—our standards for great service—in their own special ways.
It was "Lights, camera, action" at the Summit of Uptown, a newly acquired Arbor community in Park Ridge, IL, when the film crew used this hub of community life for more than 30 years as one of the locations for the independent movie Jim Shoe which premiered at The Pickwick Theatre just a block from the Summit on Wednesday, Feb. 10.
Long a hub of community life in the town it has called home for more than 30 years, Summit of Uptown hit the silver screen when Jim Shoe premiered at the iconic Pickwick Theatre just one block from Summit in Uptown in Park Ridge, IL. Not since Blues Brothers Jake and Elwood spun out in the intersection of Talcott, Devon and Courtland after speeding past the Shell Gas Station and Nelson Funeral Home have the familiar sights of Park Ridge been showcased like this on the big screen. Other Park Ridge locations include Mac's Restaurant on Higgins and Ryan-Parke Funeral Home on Northwest Highway. Spreading the Summit's fame via the magic of the movies, this independent film produced by local resident David Hoelscher, premiered in his hometown at the Pickwick, a world renowned art deco movie palace, on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m.
