Something affording pleasure, diversion, or amusement: a play, a ball, a concert. Something hospitable: an elaborate meal prepared for guests; a ballroom.
Entertaiment can be on any scale, from the individual who chooses a private entertainment from an endless array of pre-recorded products; to banquets adapted for two people; to performances intended for thousands of people. Entertainment has the ability to cross over different media and has shown a seemingly unlimited potential for creative remix, resulting in an almost infinite number of familiar themes and images. It may be abbreviated to entmt on a flier or in industry news publications when space is limited.
