A wide variety of events and experiences are considered entertaiment. It can range from a private movie or video game enjoyed by an individual, to an event intended for thousands. Entertainment is often viewed as being for amusement, but can also have serious underpinnings such as ceremony, celebration, religious festival, or even satire. The familiar forms of entertainment have proven to be extremely adaptable, with an ability to cross different media and to demonstrate a seemingly endless capacity for creative remix.
