No creo que vaya al cine después. - is it possible to say - No creo que voy al cine después? Why is subjunctive necessary when the person is the same?

Hola Emanuel

It is not possible to use the indicative I'm afraid. With this construction: "No creer que ..." we always need a subjunctive. In this specific sentence it actually has a slightly different meaning to the general translation "I don't think that...". It means "I doubt that..." which triggers the subjunctive. "Dudo que vaya al cine después" = "No creo que vaya después al cine"

About having the same subject in both clauses: "(yo) no creo que (yo) vaya al cine después", the rule doesn't apply here in this cases. You can apply that rule to verbs that express desire or hope, for example: "Quiero ir al cine" vs "Quiero que vayas al cine" or "Espero llegar a tiempo" vs "Espero que llegues a tiempo". Notice thought that in the cases with the same subject you don't have "que" but it is followed by an infinitive.

I hope this clarified your doubt.

Gracias por tu pregunta

Hola Allison

Es probable que... takes the present subjunctive. Expressions of this type, i.e "Es + adjective + que ... take the subjunctive, unless they express "certainty" like "Es cierto que Luis es guapo" (It's true that Luis is handsome).

Here is a lesson that tells you more about it:
