Editorial Styleguide

theater, theatre

Use “-er” unless “theatre” is part of the formal name: Classes in UofL’s theater program are often held in Thrust Theatre.

FYI: While this can be confusing (especially as UofL’s theater department uses the “–re” spelling for its formal name), it becomes much more simple if you remember that the only time the “–re” spelling should be used is for instances in which “Theatre” is capitalized.
