    Question mark

    You do want to go to the movies?

    Is this sentence correct? Can a sentence ending with a question mark be written with the auxiliary verb following the subject?

    (Or must it always be written as: Do you want to go to the movies?)

    Re: Question mark

    Both are correct. The meanings differ.
    You do want to go to the movies, don't you?
    Situation: a person had agreed to go to the movies, but now seems reluctant somehow.

    Must the sentence be written as you wrote it, or may the "don't you" be omitted?

    You do want to go to the movies?
