iMovie 9 is not fully compatible with El Capitan and later. Many glitches have been observed, such as photos being black and so forth. Further, iMovie 9 is no longer available or supported. If you want it you would need to restore it from a backup like Time Machine, or import it from a backup external drive.

The current version is iMovie 10.1.8 running on High Sierra. If you can update to current versions that would be your best bet.

iMovie 9, however, should still be on your computer. Did you look in your applications folder?
