"The actors are in the theater."

Translation:Histriones sunt in theatro.

Why is it not theatrum?


in theatrum would more imply movement -> "into the theater". E.g. Histriones in theatrum eunt -> The actors are going into the theater.

in theatro implies the location where the actors are (or with another verb, where the action takes place).
