At about/seeing

At about 8:30 p.m. on December 16, 2012, Nirbhaya and her boyfriend took a chartered bus home after watching the film "Life of Pi" at a Delhi movie theater. It's common in India for chartered buses to pick up additional passengers during odd hours.

1. Can remove "At" from"At about"?
2. Should it be "seeing" instead of "watching"?

Thanks

@tanguatlay,
1. No. The basic prepositional phrase is "at 8:30." "About" is a modifier indicating inexactness.
2. "Seeing" is as acceptable as "watching."
