    Is 'theatrette' a recognised word?

    Where I live, the word 'theatrette' is used to mean a small theatre.

    I wonder if such a word exists. I cannot find it in my dictionary.

    Thanks.

    I have never seen or heard it, though a check on google shows that there are some establishments that call themselves this.

    This is the first time I've seen the word as well.

    This is a common term in Aust/NZ as well, especially in a situation where it's part of a complex which includes other larger theatres, galleries etc, or perhaps connected to a school, university, library or similar institution.
