Ich gehe mit meinen Freunden ins Kino und einkaufen?

I’m trying to say that I go to the cinema and shopping with my friends- Ich gehe mit meinen Freunden ins Kino und einkaufen. However this doesn’t sound right to me?

no it woudn't you only have it without n in the end if you split the word.

ich kaufe ein

ich gehe einkaufen

... but I think the subject is "ich", so why isn't it: Ich gehe mit meinen Freunden ins Kino und kaufe ein ?

This sentence is totally fine, too. But it means you do your shopping (in a matter of fact way). If you want to emphasize the event of going shopping with your friends, the other sentence is better. "einkaufen" = to shop "einkaufen gehen" = to go shopping

That sounds rather like you go to the cinema with your friends and you go shopping (alone).

yes, thanks. I see that now. I hadn't picked up on the connection between the gehe and the einkaufen.
