Theater, theatre, who really knows the diffrence? Both words are frequently used but they have intirally diffrent meanings as to the english language. However this is a debate that is going on worldwide. there are many who say that the term theatre should refer to the art form only, and yet there are still those who would say that theater should refer to the building, the art of theater, or even a home theater system. Some people say that the term theatre is being drained of it's meaning What's your say?????
