Both can be used to make suggestions. So, use either! How about going to see a movie tonight? What about going to see a movie tonight? 意思是差不多一样, 就是提出建议. 可以用两个)))

Both are very similar and are usually use interchangeably. However there is a subtle difference in usage. 'How about' can be used as a suggestion e.g. 'How about we go for a walk?' 'What about' can be used as an option between different choices e.g. 'Do you like the colour red? What about blue?'

They both mean exactly the same and can be used interchangably. What/How about dinner tonight, Kelly?
