It sounds as if perhaps one of the projects may be "corrupted."
Try moving the contents of ~/movies/imovie projects/ to a temporary folder to see if you can get iMovie stable. Then systematically move them back.
It could also possibly be the ~/movies/imovie events/ as well.
From my experience, I have encountered more causes from the project library than the event library.

Didn't help me. I had to go into my ~/Library directory and trash some iMovie preferences. I removed a folder at the Library level. Also some com.apple.imovie* files from Preferences. And the iMovie folder from Application Support.
Hope that helps someone.

Thank you calbe. It was as you suggested. It was difficult to rid the file as the loading phase wanted to keep running.
My pleasure! Glad it worked!
I had the same problem and now resolved, thank you

My imovie has been playing up all day, have been having to force close it. My Uni deadline is on tuesday and I am so close to finishing so its very frustrating. One of my projects seems to be ok so what you said about the corrupt file could be right. I have removed it from imovie projects and imovies now seems to be ok, however I need to work on this project, is there anyway to uncorrupt it?! Thanks.
