Could you tell me if it is correct to use the present continuous tense with a future meaning with the verb 'see' in this case:
'We're seeing a great play at the theatre tonight.'
I know that normally we don't use 'see' (except when it means 'to meet' someone) in the present continuous tense, but can we use it in this sentence with reference to the near future?
We regularly use "to see" in the present continuous to mean the future.
I'm seeing a film tonight.
We're seeing a play tomorrow evening.
I'm seeing Status Quo next month.
