Carmike no longer has this theater on its website.

This house was probably a Manos Theatres operation, taken over by Carmike later. Boxoffice of April 17, 1978, said that architect Edgar Kwalwasser was designing a triplex to be built in the Franklin Village Shopping Center for the Manos circuit.

I can’t find anything in Boxffice about the opening of the house, or any other items which would confirm that it opened before 1982, or that it was originally a triplex, or that it was originally a Manos operation. But I don’t think Carmike was operating in Pennsylvania in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Carmike took over the Manos chain in 1993. Also, Mike Rivest lists the Franklin Village house as having been operated by Manos before Carmike took over.
