What is the difference between theater and movie theater? Can we watch movies in a theater? Do we watch only a play in a theater? What about in a movie theater? Do we watch only movies in a movie theater? Can't we watch a movie in a movie theater?
Movies are usually watched in "movie theatres". However, people watch movies just about everywhere now.
Theater is done on a stage. There are live actors. Many things are done in theaters,eg. ballet, opera, plays, speeches...any kind of performance. Sometimes movie theaters are used for other purposes, but not often.
