Funny word for cinema) Greek origin or just a coincedence?

Danish or swedish in origin but created by combining greek words. Bio=living. Graf= writing or depiction.

Hence the similarity to biography, the description of someones life.

Like "bioscoop" in Dutch, from Greek bios "life" and skopein "look at."

Danish is wonderful and I love Greek words in any language. It makes learning a lot easier. But in Greek we say κινηματογράφος. That would be "kinematograf." --> cinema, kino in other languages. Biograf reminds me of βιογράφος, i.e. a biographer. Still, a beautiful word. Why not.

Unless we're talking about collectable cards or something.

Do not forget what they call home-cinema. Many people can own a private cinema

That was really confusing. In Hebrew that word means ‘biographer’.
