You are saying that your plan of going to the movies will not be changed, no matter the situation.

"Anyway" can also be used to continue a story that was interrupted, for example in the conversation:

Q: В чем разница между anyway и anyways ?
A: "Anyway" is always correct. "Anyways" is incorrect slang.
Q: В чем разница между anyway и anyways ?
A: Not really a difference in meaning, but "anyways" is always colloquial (and possibly more common in some regions than others). "Anyway" is the correct dictionary form, and it can be informal, formal and anything in between.

"Anyways" can have a friendly, folksy feeling to it. Or it can sound like "lazy" English, the way teenagers speak slightly incorrectly. It depends on how the listener judges it. I personally like it, but it might sound sloppy at a job interview.
Q: В чем разница между anyway и somehow ?
A: They are both very similar and can often be used interchangeably! "Make it anyway" means regardless of the situation, you still need to make it. "Make it somehow" also means regardless of the situation, you need to make it, with whatever resources you have available.
