    Default Phrases that describe showing movies/TV dramas/theater

    I want to describe a movie/TV drama/theater (say, an opera) which will be displayed soon. Are there any difference between them in terms of the phrases used?

    e.g. The movie will be screened tomorrow; the TV drama will be run next week; the opera is on the next week.

    Below are some common collocations. There is some crossover.

    The film (movie) will be screened/premiered/released tomorrow.

    The TV drama begins/will be shown/starts next week.

    The opera/play opens next month.
