    Going to vs Present Continuous


    Could you please tell me which sentence is correct?

    I am going to see "Titanic" at the cinema tonight.
    I am seeing "Titanic" at the cinema tonight.

    Going to see a movie I see as both an intention (going to) and a fixed arrangement (present continuous). Can someone clarify this for me please?
