You should be able to control the position of the movie in level 1 as
long as you wait til it's loaded before positioning it. Here's a way to
do that:

Put a blank frame at the start of the movie to be loaded (so it doesn't
show up in the wrong place while it's loading), and label the first
frame that has actual content "mstart". Then this code should work:

first frame:
loadMovieNum ("yourmovie.swf", 1);

next frame (labelled looper):
if (_level1._framesloaded>=1 && _level1._framesloaded ==
_level1._totalframes) {
gotoAndPlay ("starthere");

next frame:
gotoAndPlay ("looper");

next frame (labelled starthere):
_level1._x = 200; // whatever you want for upperleft x
_level1._y = 100; // whatever you want for upperleft y
