DW Griffith -- You Are Going to Have One Exciting Night -- April 10, 2023

New Britain Herald, 24-April-1923

Fox's Theater placed many ads in the New Britain Herald pushing DW Griffith's One Exciting Night. I particularly like this one, which doesn't even include the name of the theater. It appeared in every issue that week. It took a while for movies to reach Alaska.

Other ads took this shape. This one ran across the bottom of a page.

This conventionally shaped ad ran the day before the run started.

Meanwhile people in Juneau, Alaska were watching a 1921 Griffith film, Dream Street.
