    Would rather /Prefer /Would prefer

    Is this analysis OK?

    Would rather : Modal verb
    Prefer : Main verb
    Would prefer : Main verb

    Also, I don't know which of the sentences below is correct.

    I would rather go to cinema than stay at home.
    I would rather go to cinema rather than stay at home.
    I would rather go to cinema to stay at home.

    Re: Would rather /Prefer /Would prefer

    I would say:

    I would rather go to the cinema than stay at home.

    I would go to the cinema rather than stay at home

    I prefer going to the cinema to staying at home.
