Grauman's "High and Dizzy"

Motion Picture News, July 31, 1920:

"Sid Grauman introduced some novel exploitation for 'High and Dizzy' when he played this picture at Grauman's theatre, Los Angeles, recently. A photograph, fifteen feet in height nicely framed, was placed over the lobby entrance, as shown in the above cut, giving Lloyd some personal billing seldom accorded to any star at the 'Million Dollar Cinema Temple.'"

The article still refers to the theatre by its original name Grauman's but by this date it was being advertised as the Million Dollar.
