Mensagem:  What does it mean in an airport for example " admiting area"? What does it mean " Jacuzzi"? "movies". Significa cinema. E o plural de filmes, é "movies" ou não tem plural? I guess the admiting area at the airport is where the passengers go and check in, where they go through security, where they wait to board the airplanes. A Jacuzzi is a brand of pools and tubs....they usually have strong pumps to circulate the water. Google Jacuzzi and see the pictures. We go to the movies (a movie theater usually has more than one film showing, so it's used in the plural). But we see only one movie when we go (unless it's a double-feature....and that doesn't happen much anymore).
