    A title for movie release on DTH plaform


    This is about release of a movie on DTH platform one day prior to its release in theaters. Can you please help me find which one is right or, is wrong and why of the following 3 options.

    1. coming to your home before theater
    2. coming to your home before theaters
    3. coming to your home before the theaters
    4. coming to your home, even before the theaters

    My take on the above 4 is as mentioned below.

    1. theater should be plural, rest is correct
    2. is correct as per me.
    3. I feel usage of 'the' is not required as 'theaters' is generic and doesn't require an article before it as there is no differentiation intended.
    4. same as 3rd sentence, we could have done without article 'the'

    Please guide if I am wrong on above.

    I wouldn't say that the article is wrong in 3 & 4- it makes it clear that it is all theatres.
