Theater Flyer for KING OF THE MONSTERS! (1956)

Here is a really cool item I bought last week on Ebay.  This is a small, folded flyer for an independent movie theater that was given out for advertising purposes--it had information about upcoming movies with dates.  I'm sure these were printed by the hundreds.  It measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", and is double sided. Here's the front side:
Nothing too interesting so far, but look what the entire inside is devoted to!
Oh yes, yes indeed--for four glorious days, you could see KING OF THE MONSTERS! So far, this is the only 1956 item I own for the first Godzilla film, but here's hoping I live long enough to score the poster one of these days!

Wonder what short subjects got played with these films? :-P

Wouldn't we love to know!
I need to research where "Buzzard's Bay" actually is!

Sounds like the type of place you'd expect to find in these movies!
