What, where ??

In theaters, I've seen 120 volts connected to the bottom half and the dimmer board connected to the top half.

Grow operations, I've only heard stories but I've heard that just about anything goes -- 120, (L-N forwards or back) 208, 240, sometimes grounded, sometimes not. About what you'd expect for an unlisted, unapproved device installed by people evading official scrutiny.

Says 125/240 15 amp

apparently a 1-15P, 2-15P, 5-15P, and 6-15P works in it?

Similar but none of those photo's show the exact same configuration as the OP.
You're right. I can't find a pic with grounding, but I did find a modern one, which you can tell by the vertical offset:

I am positive that the pic in the OP is a fake, because the T slots are identical and not polarized like this pic.

I'm saying the image looks fake, not that they don't exist. The solid black Ts don't look like actual slots.

Is yours polarized, or are the slots identical in size?
Mine is actually polarized.

I could be wrong but the older version wasn't.

And I get what you are saying, the Ts look like they are shaded black- no depth or gold contacts showing.
