매 주말마다: every each weekend
Is -마다 necessary here or is it just part of the expression?
I'm questioning if 매 is necessary
either 주말마다, 매주말, or 매주 주말. also need 에서 particle since you are talking about "every weekend" as a time you do something rather than about the weekend itself, and the verb doesn't pertain to an action where you change location.
每 週末마다 우리는 같이 映畫를 봐요.
매 is not used in Korean in this way. Only as a prefix for something like 매일, but not 매주말.... Especially when - 마다 is used because it would imply the same meaning.
The notes for the lesson explain that this is for emphasis, much like "each and every" in English
There are no notes for this lesson (anymore?) 2020-03-23
Still no notes for this lesson today (2020-10-15)

There are notes in the web version, but they donʼt mention this at all.
They wouldn't be on the app in case that's where you're looking.
What's the point of using 매 if 마다 is there?
Why can't I say Every weekend we see a movie together
As said below 매 is redundant and incorrect. Also if you choose We watch movie together every weekend it says you chose the incorrect answer :P, it may sound funny but it is still correct
Maybe 'a' before movie is necessary so it's marked as incorrect?
What does ~마다 exactly means?
It's a suffix meaning "every", as in 수요일마다 (every Wednesday).
(I think, I'm just learning, as almost everyone here)
