In the above sentdnce, I wonder why ‘to‘ is used before ‘packed theater‘.
Why not ‘in‘ ?
Hi, I'm pretty comfortable with the preposition "to", but what really made me wonder was the part that says "the movie is showing" and, because I would have preferred a passive construction there, I'm a bit curious if "the movie is being shown" is possible instead and how common/idiomatic the active version is. Thank you for your help.
