Game Description

The Movies is a business simulation game created by Lionhead Studios for Microsoft Windows and subsequently ported to Mac OS X by Feral Interactive. It was released on 8 November 2005 in North America, and 11 November 2005 in Europe after reaching gold status on 8 October 2005. The game allows players to take the role of a Hollywood film mogul, running a studio and creating films. Much has been made about the film-making aspect of the game, as it allows players to easily create viewable works or machinima. It won Best Simulation Game at the BAFTA Video Games Awards and was nominated for best game at the Game Developers Choice Awards.

  1. Hey! I cant mount any of the files as it is not an .iso file.

    Anyone know how to get this mounted/installed without that please let me know

  2. Am I the only one who didn’t get the setup.exe? I mounted the 3 discs, and got the NOCD app, but CD1 doesn’t have the setup file.

  3. If you get an error about “” being inaccessible, then make sure that WinRAR or some other program for compressed files is uninstalled and you see the “.cab” file suffix on CD1.
    Also: As written above, the Keycode is 9KH4-HDDJ-H97G-NNV4-AF27
    Good luck!

  4. Using Movies Stunts and Effects Preinstalled zip. Thank you very much for making it possible to play this great game on Windows 10. Everything works perfectly.

  5. All actors and directors are blacked out, while all the other models look fine. Can’t see the result movie, game crashes.
    So sad

    • You should choose and download 4gb patch (on another site, it is safe) Patch exe files (movies.exe and starmaker.exe) after installing the game. I tried and it worked at last! I had the same problem with black textures. Preinstalled Version had same black textures even though i used 4 gb patch. Windows 10
