    Present Continuous vs be going to

    Hello,

    which construction I should use to ask somebody the following question:
    1. Are you going to the cinema to see the latest action movie?
    2. Are you going to go to the cinema to see the latest action movie?

    When I want to ask this question it's about one week before the movie's premiere. Which version should I choose?

    Thanks for your replies,
    regards

    Re: Present Continuous vs be going to

    Both are possible and, in this particular situation, there is no significant difference in meaning.
