Click VIEW/PLAYHEAD INFO. Then you can see the time the video was shot as your skim.

Thanks for your reply, but not sure this has anything to do with the question I asked...
It appears that viewing playhead info only reveals the date/time that the entire event was created.
Again, I have a 2hr long event. At exactly 24 munites 18 seconds into the video I want to grab a scene and move it to my project. How do I find that exact spot without having to scroll through all the thumbnails?

OK, so you have a single clip that is two hours long with no date metadata. Here is what I would suggest.
1) Create a new folder within your iMovie Events folder. Give it a name and copy this clip into it.
2) Change the name of this clip. If you know that date and time this clip was shot, you can use that. If not, today's date will do. Change the name of the clip to clip-yyyy-mm-dd hh;mm;ss.ext
where: ext is the current file extension
hh is hours in 24 hour time.
If you want to see the actual clock time, e.g. 3:34PM, then use the time it was shot. If you just want to see the time as an offset from zero, use clip-yyyy-mm-dd 00;00;00.ext
3) Restart iMovie and let it generate thumbnails for this new event.
4) Now you can skim and see the time after clicking VIEW/PLAYHEAD INFO.
