I have not found a use for unload. If I have a movie that has loaded and
is no longer needed, I just send it to a stopped, blank frame. What I'm not
certain is whether this occupies any more processor power than unloading
the movie.

The one use I can think of for unloading a movie is to replace the level
zero movie for the purpose of changing frame rate. But by loading a new
movie into level zero you automatically unload what was already there, as
well as unloading all movies in all other levels.
