Sunday Comic Section Advertisement - August 1951

A very nice full color ad from the comic section from the Jacksonville Times-Union newspaper, promoting the film at the Florida Theater in Jacksonville, Florida. Alice opened at the Florida Theater on August 11th, 1951, so this ad is very likely from August 12th since it mentions that it is currently showing. And look, red striped stockings, my favorite!

The Florida Theater is still in existance today, one of the few remaining movie palaces originally built in the 1920s. If you are interested in the history of that theater, look here.
