Spencer's Robey Theater, described as the longest running movie house in America, is lurching into 21st Century technology Friday with a 3-D showing of "Yogi Bear 3-D."

Owner Aaron Richardson says a new digital projector with 3-D equipment has been installed this week.

Movies are transcending from film to digital projection, said Richardson, which has the same resolution as a high-definition TV.

Movies on film will soon be a thing of the past.

The Robey has also installed a new digital sound processor.

The digital projector can display 35.2 trillion colors with a brightness of 18,000 lumens.

The theatre also has a new 3-D silver screen.

"We hope the community will enjoy the new technology, making their movie entertainment a lot more enjoyable," Richardson said.

The Robey is on the register as a national historic site.
