Cinema versus Theatre usage in our movie articles Explained

It is really nice to see more cinemas popping up in Oslo and we use the cinema word a lot. However, we do have lots of American readers so we ow you an explenation.

Here, many loves to watch a nice move at the cinema as I like to write.

I like to use cinema instead of theatre is a habbit of mine. My simple reason for that is that British English is the language that we got to learn at school. “The movies” is chiefly American. “The cinema” is chiefly British. “Theater/theatre” is said of places where plays are shown, however if you modify it to “movie theater” then you have a theater where films are shown. “Movie house” can also be used. But I use cinema because its a nice name for the type of building that is showing movies. In my native language Norwegian, the word is Kino. In Polish it is Kino. In Swedish it is Bio. Thanks for understanding and have a nice cinematic year of 2018!
