    Act three, scene one.

    Addressing a dialogue in a play, 'Frankie says: Act three, scene one'
    My question is: Is an act divided into scenes or a scene is divided into acts?

    I think a play is divided into some scenes and then each scene is divided into acts or plans? Dunno really, confused am I.

    Plays are divided into acts. Each act is divided into scenes.

    Exactly. And in movie scripts, each individual camera shot is called a scene, even if it's just a short shot with no dialogue. They are edited together into sequences, and the sequences are edited together into acts.
