Paulais Confectaurant advertisement in the ROMOLA (1924) program from the premier at Grauman's Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles

Complete the day's enjoyment

After witnessing this inspired spectacle, such as only sid Grauman knows how to produce, complete the day's enjoyment at PAULAIS' CONFECTAURANT -- on your right as you leave the theatre.

In the Venetian tea Room you may be served with a luncheon as simple or a dinner as elaborate as your appetite may dictate. Or, if time limits you, stop at the crystal fountain for a refreshing drink. And in the intermission -- don't forget, too, that paulais confections are delicios and ever acceptable.

Paulais


with Lillian Gish, Dorothy Gish, William Powell and Ronald Colman. Directed by Henry King. Inspiration/Metro-Goldwyn.
