Movies or the Flicks?

Our friend H.W. Fowler strikes again: Under the listing ‘movies’, he says, “Americans go to the movies. English people, after a half-hearted experiment with ‘flicks’, now go either to the ‘pictures’ or to the ‘cinema’.” 
WIth the Americanisation of Australia, I bet we all say ‘movies’ – I know I do. What do you say?
