Entertaiment is an umbrella term that covers many different experiences. It can range from an individual’s private recreation, such as selecting and listening to pre-recorded music; to a family’s dinner parties; to large public events, such as theatre, concerts or sports competitions. It can be scripted and formal, as in the case of a performance or a film; or unscripted and informal, as in children’s games. It may be a form of amusement, although entertainment can also serve more serious purposes, such as ceremonies, celebrations or social satire.
ENTM is sometimes abbreviated on fliers or in industry news publications where space is at a premium to simply entmt.
