Thanks Brad,

Is the purpose of using unload movie in your instance to
avoid an unnecessarily long initial loading period? Instead you seem to be arranging shorter loadings of user selected movies and avoiding
loading some user unselected movies altogether. Cool! if I get your drift.

Why do you unload the base movie and then reload it Is that to change the
frame rate or background or something?
Does unloading and then reloading a movie cost any time or is it cached for
the duration of the user's visit and thus instantly reloaded?

Load movie is very useful if you have, say, a four section web site. You
divide the four sections into four different movies. When a user clicks on
"section1", that loads movieone.swf into level1. Then the user clicks on
"section2", unload level1, load movietwo.swf into level1.
I have used it for a game where two sections are basically the same (a girl
version and a boy version) instead of loading both movies, there is a base
movie where the user chooses boy or girl and then it loads the
corresponding movie. When you get to the end, the play again button unloads
the movie and puts the base movie back to the beginning.
