Looking for more data regarding the following information provided by Paul Rosenberry:

There was also another 4-plex in downtown Chambersburg, a real antique. I remember it had one of those marquees that stick out over the sidewalk with changeable lettering. It was owned by Manos Theaters in 1987. It looked like an ancient bowling-alley shaped one-screen that was split the long way, making two houses look like gun barrels. Each of those two houses had two wall sconces to light the whole auditorium which must have been 160' long. The cleaners carried flashlights. The two newer houses were much smaller.

Was this the Rosedale Theatre at 31 N. Main St.?

That's not the name I remember it by, at least. I think I'll know it when I hear it. I want to say it started with an 'S'? Storey? Bah. It's frustrating. I remember having the run of the place... Once you got above the ground floor you could walk wooden beams to any room in the building. Certainly a security nightmare, but fun nonetheless.
