    Vocabulary: let's go to the cinema!

    When arriving in front of a cinema/ movie theatre you must first choose your film. You may have made your choice on a magazine ( "What's on?") or on the Internet. In all cases, you'll have to stand in the line ( to queue up) corresponding to the film you have chosen. 

    Entering the movie theatre, you may be surprised by its size and by that of the screen.

     a stuntman a stunt 
     the lead actor/ actress  the supporting role/part 
     a minor role the cast


    When you want to watch a foreign film, you have to make a choice between two possibilities:

    -        You may choose a film where the dialogues are dubbed, which means that you can hear the dialogues in your own language, while you can't really lip-read them. 

    -         Or, you may choose to follow the film in its original language, in O. V. (in the "original version" ), listening to "the original soundtrack"



                                                                                                     This film is subtitled


    There are many types of films: 

                     Silent films

              Black and White films        

                 A cartoon

          Animated cartoons

              "The End"

       = The last words of a film
