    Default I really gotta split for the scene

    Hi, I'd like to know the meaning og this expression: I really gotta split for the scene.
    This is the context:
    a boy is talking with a girl he likes and that he meets by chance while he is walking to the cinema; he spends a lot of time with her chatting and almost forgets that he has invited one of his friends to go to the cinema.He is late and his friend will be waiting for him outside the cinema. The boy says bye to the girl saying: I really gotta split for the scene.
    I have two hypothesis:
    I must go now (gotta split) because I have to go to the cinema ( for the scene) or
    I must go now (gotta split) and walk as fast as possible (for the scene)
    What do you think about it?
    Thanks

    Default Re: I really gotta split for the scene

    My doubt is: does the scene mean specifically the cinema?
