At what point is hanging out a date?

Anonymous
I've recently become friends with a guy, and we have hobbies in common (how we met), but we hadn't hung out outside of that. He invited me to hang out, and we went to see a movie and got ice cream. He wouldn't let me pay, and he messaged me after saying he had a great time, and that we should do it again. I didn't think anything of it, but my friend said that it might have been a date, but I'm not sure either way.
