Rarely is more common nowadays. Seldom is quite formal. We also say "I don't often..." or "I don't... often"
Such as:
I rarely go to the cinema
I dont go to the cinema often
I don't often go to the cinema
I seldom go to the cinema

All of these are good 😊

They mean the same thing. Rarely is more common, seldom is a little fancier
