  • A term that is sometimes used interchangeably with film and the movies but also has a larger scope. Cinema (or the cinema) generally refers collectively to the entire range of activities or products related to the motion picture industry and the academic or cultural practices encompassing all movies and not just an individual film. The cinema is thought to have the characteristics of a commodity, a form of communication, a spectacle, a special effect, a tool of ideology, or an apparatus that creates the modern subject. For more information, see Cubitt (2004).
