Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

theatrical (comparative more theatrical, superlative most theatrical)

  1. Of or relating to the theatre.
    • 12 July 2012, Sam Adams, AV Club Ice Age: Continental Drift
      The matter of whether the world needs a fourth Ice Age movie pales beside the question of why there were three before it, but Continental Drift feels less like an extension of a theatrical franchise than an episode of a middling TV cartoon, lolling around on territory that’s already been settled.
  2. Fake and exaggerated.
