Since this theater is located outside of the United States, it should be spelled “Theatre”. Thats my understanding of the policy here.

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.

It makes no sense to me either, Warren. I don’t know the reason for it, and I don’t agree with it. I just follow the rules as they were explained to me. In addition to “foreign” theaters being spelled “theatre”, if an open U.S. theater has a website and the word “theater” is spelled “theatre” on that website, thats the way the word is spelled on that theater page. Maybe management will respond to these comments and explain the reason for this policy.

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

As far as I know, the rules aren’t listed anywhere on here for you to read. The best way to find out what the rules are, is to break one. LOL

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.
