In brief: Absolutely
While it may be uncomfortable due to the increased sensitivity to light, no harm can come from using your eyes after dilation.
You may not feel safe to drive to the movies, however, so you may want a friend to drive you!

It is safe to watch a movie after getting your eyes dilated.
The screen may appear too bright until the eye drops wear off, in which case you can wear sunglasses.
