Assunto:  The movies
 
Mensagem:  I was looking up the word movie at Longman On-line dictionary and I found this sentence : maybe we'll go to a movie. 

I've learnt that movie is the same as film and it is a countable noun, so it can take plural form movies and the movies is the same as cinema (movie Theather).  But how about the Longman's example ?

In some sentences I saw the word theather used as movies I supposed that is because there is the words Movie theather but how to distinguish between Teatro and Cinema ?
