• (British) IPA: /θiˈæt.ɹɪ.kəl/


  1. Of or relating to the theatre.

      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.
