[edit] Theater or Theatre?

"Theatre" isn't in my webster's dictionary. Should this be change to "theater"? --TheYellowDart(t/c)

"Theatre" is an alternate spelling that should appear in any good dictionary. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:59, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Wiktionary confirms what I suspected: in US Englilsh, "theatre" primarily refers to live performances, while "theater" is usually used for cinema. I say this article should be moved to The Movie Theater. Trey56 23:15, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Interestingly, Theyellowdart this may explain why "theatre" doesn't appear in Mr. Webster's dictionary ;) Trey56 23:17, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Hmm, it'd be nice to find another source besides Wiktionary, but I do believe what it says there is correct, so I'd be good with supporting a move. Heimstern Läufer 23:19, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
I couldn't find any distinction on or, but this source suggests that "theater" is better when referring to the building itself. Given the omission on the first two sources I checked, I suspect that it's probably not wrong to leave it as is, but it may be preferred. Trey56 23:32, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Done. We should probably leave the redirect. — It's dot com 23:38, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Absolutely; precedents for this include colouring and personal favourites. Heimstern Läufer 23:58, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Ah, that looks better. Qermaq, is my dictionary not good enough, HUH?!?! ;) TheYellowDart(t/c)
I should say it lacks a common alternate spelling of "theater". But I was not able to weigh in on the name change proposal due to time. I'm happy with the results. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:10, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Change the picture?

  • Should there be a picture change with the gang at the movies in the movies instead of the out-of-date Coach Z one. To me, a screenshot of more characters in it would be better. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 02:54, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
Go ahead. Bad Bad Guy 00:20, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

I added a new screen from the movies--~ SlipStream 12:00, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Under the Field?

What about the picture of the movie theater when strong bad has blown a hole in the roof and we find out it is actually under the field? Surely that would be appropiate. I think it was in the easter egg for the movies. 10:39, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] The movies movie

In the movies, they were watching "forty-twan" according to Senor Cartgage, and according to Strong Sad there was a pre-quel to it. So that's why I added it to the list of movies Nihaho13 00:13, 13 June 2010 (UTC)

"Forty-twan" is probably the theatre number, not the title of the movie. --DorianGray 00:14, 13 June 2010 (UTC)
