If you have a directory called movies under your document root, then the
URL should find it. Check you directory layout - for example, if you

DocumentRoot /path/to/docroot

then your movies should be in /path/to/docroot/movies. Then will end up in that directory.

If you also have:

Options +Indexes

in the same VH, then the user should get a listing.
