Why is "en" used as "at" when usually it is translated as "in" ?

A helpful way to think about it is that "a" implies movement.

For example, you would say "llego al cine" -- "I arrive at the movie theater"-- but "Estoy en el cine"-- "I am at the movie theater."

Other examples include:

Salir + a -- To leave to somewhere

Ir + a -- To go (to) somewhere

Empezar + a -- To start to (do something)

I have the same challenge.

Slow down and maybe it will work better. That's what I have to do.
