There's a persistent error in this course in not accepting "movie theater" for mozi. Personally, I don't know anybody that calls it a "cinema". Curiously, though, film can be translated as "movie", so... what gives?
I consistently call it "cinema" because a "theater" for me is a place where people are acting live. It's chiefly British, I think.
Curiously, though, "film" is often not accepted as English translation either, so what gives? ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
