The 1925 Fred Niblo film "Ben-Hur" with Ramon Navarro was an MGM production but it didn't play MGM's showplace Loew's State. The initial two-a-day engagement was at the Biltmore, normally a legit theatre.
The illustration here is from a Mason Theatre program in the collection of Danni Bayles-Yeager. Erlanger was also running the Mason at the time. Head to Danni's Performing Arts Archive for the full Mason program.
