A movie (also referred to as a motion picture or film) is a sequence of images, usually on a celluloid strip, projected with sufficient speed to create the illusion of one, solid, moving picture. Originally without audio and in "black-and-white" format, movies later on became colorized with enhanced, stereo sound and three dimensional projection. The theatre/cinema venue may be indoors or outdoors. (VOY episodes: "Repression", "Lifesigns")
