Entertainment can be enjoyed on any scale—from an individual selecting a pre-recorded film or book for private amusement to a banquet for two; from an event adapted for a family to performances intended for thousands. It may involve music and dance, food and drink, art and literature, ritual, ceremony, religious festival, or even satire. Entertainment has proven an endlessly adaptable form with the ability to cross over multiple media, preserving its familiar themes and images across time and space.
