what the diference in meaning between the following pairs of sentences

1.Do you like going to the theatre?
2.Would you like to go to the theatre?

1.The first sentence is a yes o no answer.

  • English -

    #1 is asking you a preference... Is "going to the theatre" something you enjoy doing" Example - Do you like the zoo?

    #2 Is asking if you would like to attend.... Example - Would you like to go to the zoo?

  • English -

    Both questions require only yes or no answers, but they are not asking exactly the same thing.

    The first is asking the question in general -- do you like... (or not)?

    The second seems to be asking if someone would like to go to a particular play or movie.

    What do you think?
