I don't think anyone would lose any sleep over him saying he doesn't like the movies and finds them shallow. But instead he says they are not cinema, meaning, they are not movies. That's what the sentence means in reality, when referencing a dictionary.
There are degrees of nuance to every art-form and that's what Scorsese is referring to.
And he then compares it to a theme park, which is also not a movie. The meaning is pretty clear to me.
