I tried "De dames gaan naar de biscoop samen" and was marked wrong. Can "samen" not be at the end of the sentence here?

No, we would say ''De dames gaan samen naar de bioscoop''. This is the most common way to say this.

You could also say ''Samen gaan de dames naar de bioscoop'', but then you highlight the fact that they are going together. I think you can do the same in English as well: ''Together they are going...''.

So the correct translation for this sentence would be ''De dames gaan samen naar de bioscoop''.
