FCP X is different from most applications, in that it does not "open" files in the usual sense (e.g. there is no File->Open, or Cmd-O). If you look at the File menu, there is no such command. You can't, for example, open a project from within FCP X located somewhere in your file system.
This is by design. FCP X is a database driven application, not a file driven application. You "open" a project by selecting it from the project library.
