I would love to see that one. Looked for a copy quickly and came across this. May be parts of it cut up for a display.

I used to have a photo of one on display (in TN maybe?), but not sure what I did with it.
Although the Godzilla art from the 24-sheet was also made available separately as a 9-ft standee, I think Loew's made their own custom display for the premiere in April, 1956.

So is this pic a Godzilla 24 sheet that is on the marquee of that theater? Or parts of one used and then backlit?

No, this is not a 24 sheet.  This is the marquee of a theater playing the film.  This is an elaborate display on a marquee, probably concocted with the assistance of an advertising display company.  No one would use a 24-sheet as a marquee.  Kirby

This weekend I was in Scottsdale AZ at the formal opening of the film poster exhibit there and photographed this 24 sheet for JEREMIAH JOHNSON (1972).  Pretty nice!
