“Filming Tom Ewell and Marilyn Monroe exiting a theatre playing THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954) for the comedy classic SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955), directed by Billy Wilder.”

Per IMDB: “The New York movie theater that’s supposedly showing Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) was really showing the Leslie Caron movie LILI (1953) at the time; the side of the theater visible to viewers had the "Creature” title on the marquee (along with a standee of monster and maiden on top of it), but the front of the theater marque (not visible) was still listing “Lili”. A photo of the theater with all “conflicting” marquees visible was tacked up in the Fox photo department for decades."

“That movie house was the Trans-Lux 52nd Street Theatre, located at 586 Lexington Avenue. It closed in 1965 and has since been demolished.”
