Moving Picture World magazine for April 6, 1918 says

“Lebanon, Pa.—J. A. Jackson, of the Theatorium, Lebanon, recently installed a magnificent organ which is considered one of the largest in this state.”

When it comes to organs, there is no end of hype, so ‘largest in the state’ is laughable. Cross referencing the pipe organ databases, there is no mention of the name Theatorium or Aldine in Lebanon PA.

This suggests the Theatorium / Aldine was nickelodeon-sized with a photoplayer in front of its tiny stage. As happened so often elsewhere, the older, smaller theatre lost out to the stiff competition from newer, bigger halls of the 1920s.
