Re: Difference between , What time is it? / What is the time?
I would use "What's the time?" more frequently but you will hear "What time is it?" just as often. There is no difference between them provided the speaker wants to know what the time is right now (at the time of asking).

In the dialogue above, "What time is it?" means "What time does the theatre performance start on Friday evening?"
