Theatre vs Theater

Both are correct. On this website, for reasons mostly arbitrary (and also slightly aesthetic and pretentious), I will use the British spelling, theatre, unless referring to a specific theatre company, which may spell its name theater, as in Silverthorne Theater Company. In general, though, the word theatre, as it refers to a concept or an art form will be spelled -re. Any inconsistencies regarding this convention are, of course, my own error.
