Theatre is a real word and non-Canadians are wrong.

I'm trying to understand what's going on with Flint's arm in the last panel. It bends in ways some would consider to be... unnatural.

@Yan Mouson: Which is why the vast majority of the drawing I do is the infamous 'two heads in a panel'.

*You do what you can do, GreenKrog, and your efforts with Wildflowers are much appreciated, at least by me !

Hah! And here I always thought it was a difference between live and filmed venues.

Going to see Hamlet at the Riverwalk Theatre vs. going to see Power Rangers at the Charlotte Theater.

:D

@Lex-Kat: Queens English vs boorish 'murican pig language, my good little monster.

Unfortunately, many a Canadian has forgotten her majesty (since, you know, we kindly asked for our independence and they just gave it to us because we asked nicely). But our kids, and I am 100% serious, still swore to the Queen back when I was in school. I dunno if it is still true these days, but mayhaps Annie has sung "God save the Queen". Probably a hell of a lot better than I ever did!

@Lex-Kat: In the US, if it someone is using theatre/theater to make a distinction, it's usually a distinction between the art-form (and those that create/produce such art) and the facilitation. With this distinction, the building itself would be a theater, but most theaters which are involved in production would be associated with a theatre company and might take their name from that. Most movie theaters and simple touring houses will use theater in their name.
There are exceptions to this generality, mostly from people not caring to make a distinction and instead going for either the boorish 'Murican spelling or appealing to the grandeur of the Queen's spelling. There are also some community theater companies that see themselves as just facilitating people being on a stage and (on the other end of the spectrum) some theaters (movie or touring house) who carefully curate what is put on there and therefore the selection itself becomes theatre.

I'm a theatre person (director, mostly, though I've acted too), and I completely agree with you, AK: "theater" just seems boorish.
