Hi! A couple of things here:

1) I would recommend expanding your array out onto multiple lines so that you can visually check for consistency. For example:

<?php
$movie = array(
  'title' => "The Empire Strikes Back",
  'year' => 1980
);
?>

A simple array value being echoed generally doesn't need to be spread out, but your call to the array keys and their respective values are incorrect. Think back on what you've learned!

<h1><?php echo $movie['title'];?> (<?php echo $movie['year'];?>)</h1>

2) Remember that integers do not need quotation marks! Take a few minutes to spread out your code and check it for accuracy.

You're almost there, so good luck! If my answer helped you complete the challenge, please show your support by voting/marking it as Best Answer. :)
