A "Cue" is the same as a track on a CD.

The word is used to represent the point in the film in which it starts.

Ex.The scene in which everyone is celebrating Nash's acceptance into Wheeler Labs, transitions into a scene of the Pentagon,years later.That transition
is the "cue" for the "Cracking The Russian Codes" (my favorite)track to begin.
So "Track" for a CD,"Cue" for in the film itself.

Hope this helps.
