An art_centre has a much wider scope than a theare. It's not just about plays, coursee are held there, etc (see wiki). IMHO an amphitheatre is definitely an amenity=theatre, not art_centre.

http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/theatre%3Atype#values is fairly well established, and 'amphi' seems to be a mundane abbrev of 'amphitheatre'
