What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is an important cultural category that spans a variety of forms. It enables people to engage in social activities, derive pleasure, and gain insight into the human condition. Entertainment also demonstrates great longevity, with familiar themes and images crossing multiple media. These enduring themes provide entertainment at any scale, from the individual who chooses his or her own private entertainment from a huge range of pre-recorded products; to a banquet adapted for two; to performances intended for thousands.
