I'm taking this girl out and I've never done a date at the movies. I'm paying and letting her pick the movie if she wants because I'm nice.
This will be our first date together.
Basically what should or would a guy do during the date.
Pretty much I don't want to put my arm around her and she flips. That's one thing.
And would dinner before or after the movie be appropriate. Would it matter where?

1) Be considerate, don't be "nice" - you want to be a man and choose the movie; however, if she says how much "fun it would be" to see a certain movie - keep that in mind. You could then pick that movie down the road when you return to see another.
2) As a first date - refrain from kissing her or commenting on anything sexual unless she starts it. A lot of the women out there find this as a red-flag and will throw up a wall by considering you a creep for talking about those things on the first date (the same as confessing an undying love to her ;D)
3) Throwing you arm around her is nothing wrong - but instead of just "flopping it on her" like a dead fish to a cutting board. Offer it to her, make her come to you and feel comfortable. Raise your arm in the position of how you would completely put your arm around her - then smile and look at her like "Would you like this?" - make sure it is sincere and friendly
4) Dinner and a movie seems sweet. Dinner would be appropriate either before or after. I would offer dinner before the movie so your stomache isn't growling all the way throughout the movie, and so you can have a conversation with her for a while before. Alternatively, dinner would be accepted after the movie as well for an intellectual conversation.
** Note : Some women like to dwell in the moment, so they will leave in fear of making a bad impression if they stay longer. Just something to keep in mind - let her enjoy her night however she would like **
