What is the diffrerence between film, cinema and movie? I think they all mean the same. Please help me with their usage( if any).
All three terms refer to motion pictures.
There are some regional preferences with cinema, which can refer to a motion picture as 'a cinema', the industry, 'he works in cinema', or a night out, 'we're going to the cinema'. 'Cinema' is not as common in the US.
'Movies' is generic term. We saw a movie. He works in the movies.
People will refer to a better than average movie as a film.
