I'm not sure what this means exactly, but I found it to be very interesting.

There's a deleted scene of Rose and Cybil breaking into a building and stealing a map to the town to aid them in finding the Grand Hotel, and the map from that scene is in Rose's hand when she and Cybil meet Anna.
Here's a site with a still from the deleted scene:

The prop was sold on Premiere Props after the release of the film.

Here's what the prop map looks like:

And here's what the map looks like upside down:

I guess it really goes to show that the cultists had a major strangehold on the town. It's amazing the amount of detail they put into even the small things.

Holy cow. That's some awesome detail there!

I wonder if they could've took the money used to create that map that no one even really gets to see or cares about and maybe put a little more effort into paying someone to point out obviously dumb lines in the movie. ((OHHHH BURRRRNN))

Well, hooray Alex420! You've discovered a gem. It's actually quite nice for us SH film fanatics, as I know I relish every exposed detail.

That's pretty cool.
Is there an image of the full map?

Awesome...and the church is smack in the center of the cross. I wish they hadn't deleted this scene. Wonder if it is on purpose that they used a Christian cross for the map and only upside down can you really see the right side up "symbol of faith".

Nice find!

It was probably intentional, but more because of the common Hollywood trope of using an upside-down cross the represent evil (in reality, the symbol is actually pretty commonly used to represent Christian martyrdom, but not so much in horror films).
