Ok the movie is already downloaded...

I don't have Internet on that device now. Is there a way a play it? Remember I can't download anything.

My other iPad has LTE but not the one with the movie.

Left that at home. Can I setup hot spot in my other ipad without having to contact AT&T?

OK, so if this iPad is not LTE enabled and you have no wifi, it's basically incommunicado. No downloads. That's always going to be the limitation of wifi-only iPads.

So, you want to play a movie? How was it transferred to the iPad? If it was synchronized through iTunes, it should play. If not, there may be a format or copyright issue.
Is it a copyright protected movie? Some movies will not play on iTunes.
Have you tried to sync the movie into iTunes?
How are you trying to play it? Is there an error message?

A couple of things: The HD version on iTunes is 4.3GB, which requires that your device must be HDCP compliant. HDCP="Hi Def Copy Protection". If this copy of the movie came from a torrent, it's most likely blocked on your device. ITunes won't play it.

Yep it required wifi to play. No way around that. I tested that other app but it does not play movies already stored on the device.
