One of the problems you can encounter depending on lighting situations is ghosting where the camera pics up a reflection in the filter. In those situations you can just pop it off.
In cinema I've rarely seen them left on, the idea i believe being to have the cleanest optical path possible.

A whiles back I decided ah bugger it and dont use UV filters anymore (unless I'm filtering B&W for UV that is) - Some alt stills processes are UV dependent anyhoo (Wet Plate Collodion for instance)
Haven't scratched a lens yet
