It should also be noted that on the description of the J.W. Sandison Chaplin contest photo in the link above, it was taken November 5, 1921 not 1919 as stated in the Overview.
The film was released on September 25, 1921.
There is no mention of Chaplin being in the window. Sandison’s own studio was next door to the Liberty at 126 -½ W. Holly. So he was often hired to take the theatre’s PR photos.
This website had 2 J.W. Sandison photos of the Liberty Theatre. The famous 1921 shot of the Chaplin contest mentioned in the Overview. Plus a second photo from 1921 with D.W. Griffith’s “Dream Street” appearing at the Liberty.

Lou, do you have the original version of this photo?
One that has not been enlarged?
Scarlett Johansson’s new film “Under The Skin” will be the first film in 25 years to premiere there.
Luckily I just found the FB page they were originally on, via the rarely used Activity Log on FB. I’d forgotten I commented about Hair’s producer Michael Butler’s Chicago connection. I have downloaded them and re-posted them to the correct theater. Oddly they are the only 2 photos on that page. And only 10 comments.
CT has already deleted those photos. Unfortunately they did not post them to the correct page before doing so. And I am unable to find them in my files, because they had Facebook generated numbers that had 100 digits.
If I happen across them again, I will post them where they belong.
Just added a 1955 photo.
