No argument from me.

I never heard of such a policy. It doesn’t even make sense. There are thousands of USA cinemas listed here at CT with the spelling “Theatre.” In fact, I would guess far more than with the spelling “Theater.” I personally prefer “Theatre,” as does Theatre Historical Society of America.

Who explaines the rules? Are they listed someplace? I don’t want to make any mistakes! My computer makes enough for me!

We always go by the official name of the theater.

If there is no official name (or the name is unclear), we use “theater” for American theaters, especially when referring to theaters in a generic sense (“I would really like to visit a movie theater in Boston”).

For European theaters, as well as those in Australia, we use the term “cinema” when the proper name is not known.
