    I don't live in Europe, but in New Zealand we'd spell it theatre. I suspect the Australians might come down on the side of theater.

    I'm intrigued by your use of the term 'Europeans'. Is that some sort of euphimism for 'not American'? The UK and Ireland are really the only(?) countries in Europe that primarily speak English, so most Europeans probably have a completely different word in their own language (although they may be derived from the same Latin/Greek root).

    • Theatre here, which was Australia last time I looked: but give it another decade or so and "theater" will probably dominate, as will "color" et al.
    • When I say "European", what I really mean is "our marketing people have some awfully silly ideas", but I was trying to be a bit diplomatic about it :)
