    Watch, See or view a movie

    Which ones are correct?

    1. I will go to the cinema to see the movie.
    2. I will go to the cinema to watch the movie.
    3. I will go to the cinema to view the movie.

    I think the second is not correct because watch is used for television, not at a cinema.

    But, can we use view for both situation: on TV and at a cinema?

    Thank you so much for you help!

    I wouldn't use 'view' at all. I'd say

    I'm taking Sheila Blige to the cinema to see Little Women.

    I'm going to watch Star Wars on TV with Annie Mossity.

    1) Don't use view for TV or cinema.

    2) Use watch for both. For cinema only, you can also use see.
