  • The word "cinedie" is made up of the short for cinema and the latin word for "day" (die). It's a play with words with the expression sine die ("without day") used -- for instance in courts of law -- when something is postponed without a new date being set. Cinedie was meant to mean "cinema day". "Die" should be read "dee-eh", i.e., with an 'i' as in "pit" and an 'e' as in "bet".
