When we are talking about schedules, we should use present simple tense, shouldn't we?

Yes, you are right! Only the present simple tense: The train to Oxford arrives at six. The plane to New York departs in an hour.

Well, what do you mean? If you mean comparing schedules for the future, I'd use future tense. As in: "I will go to the movies tomorrow," or more colloquially, "I'm going to/gonna go to the movies tomorrow."
