hi, single quotes will not work when referencing the variable as it will be picked up as text rather than the array value. So you would need to change to double quotes. but please see my example of concatenation and using single quotes.

your example:

<?php echo '<h1> $movie["title"] </h1>;' ?>

Updated example:

<?php echo '<h1>' .  $movie["title"] . ' </h1>'; ?>

hope this helps?
