Things like location setting where, in film, the viewer is able to have a wider picture of the environment, community, and a larger setting allows for more physical movement than say what would be possible on a stage. Also, film language can also be a big addition when understanding the good elements of film to theater.

These visual elements: the costumes, settings and props, lighting, and the actor’s performance, are all aspects of mise-en-scene which is inherited from its origin in theatre play.
