"We will see the movie in the cinema."
Translation:Feicfimid an scannán sa phictiúrlann.
Somewhere else I saw "cineama" used as a word for "cinema" or "movie theater." Is that an acceptable synonym for "pictiúrlann," or does "cineama" refer more to the art of filmmaking?
yes, it's the art of filmmaking (or the 'cinema' in 'Irish cinema'), not the place.
