Robey Theatre

Spencer, WV

The Robey Theatre is the longest continuously running theatre in West Virginia. It was built by Hamond Robey in 1911 specifically for the exhibition of films.

Completed by the architectural firm of Carmichael and Millspaugh, this $100,000 remodeling, with the exception of a few later minor changes, remains intact today. The remodeling, changed the facade and enlarged the stage and the theatre was reopened with much pomp and ceremony. In the late 1920’s the Robey was one of the first theatres in the area to install sound equipment. Listed National Register of Historical Places-1989.
