    "see a movie" vs "watch a movie"

    1) Have you seen that movie?
    2) Have you watched that movie?

    3) Did you see the movie yesterday?
    4) Did you watch the movie yesterday?


    Can someone please tell me which of the above sentences are correct? When should we use see or watch with respect to movies?

    Re: "see a movie" vs "watch a movie"

    For me, it's "see" at the movies or on TV, and "watch" for TV.

    Re: "see a movie" vs "watch a movie"

    All of the sentences are correct.

    For me also, I see a movie in the cinema, but I watch a movie at home.
    In the past I generally think I saw that movie, I have seen that movie.

    I am not a teacher.
