    Smile Tom is in favor of going to the movie

    Tom is in favor of going to the movies, while Jack insists on playing basketball.



    Does the part in bold mean "Tom prefer to/would rather go to the movies?" Thanks.

    There was an informal vote taken among some people as to what they wanted to do (it could just be between Tom and Jack). Tom voted for going to the movies. Jack wants to play basketball.

    You could say it was Tom's preference.
