Lesson 4: At the Movies


Feel Like Seeing A Movie?

When going to the theaters in another country, it’s useful to know the similarities and differences from your own country.  Most foreign films are either "dubbed" or shown with "subtitles".  Below are some other terms that are good to know.

The Camera (to film movies)
The Projector (to show movies)
The Silver Screen (the movie screen)
The Box Office (where you buy tickets)
First come, first served. (for tickets/seating)
An Usher (person who shows you to your seat)

Things you might hear before the movie starts:
"Thirsty? Visit our concession stand."
"A variety of delightful munchies at the concession stand."
"Movies are more fun with popcorn."
"Thank you for not talking during the movie."
"Do not litter in this auditorium."
