One Of The Oldest Movie Theaters In The Country Is Right Here In West Virginia

The Robey Theatre in Spencer, WV claims to be the oldest continuously operating movie theater in the United States. That’s a claim that is contested by some, since the theater has changed hands and made changes to the building a couple of times since its start in 1907. Either way, it still has an impressive history.
