I'm going to the movies with a guy. He said "I'll pay btw" should I still offer?

Yes definitely offer! He will again say that he's got it covered, and then let him pay and thank him sweetly. It's always nice and respectful when the girl offers to pay for her own ticket/meal but if you argue about it or insist on it, it'll come across that you just want to be friends.
Believe it or not, guys like to pay for the girl when they start out dating. We don't just do it because its the norms.. It makes us feel "in control" in a way I guess, or able to provide for the lady we're with. We'd almost feel "weak" or insecure if we didn't... It's hard to explain in words but it's kind of a confidence thing. Long story short, he'll be glad to pay for you.3
