I'd try to think about different names. I don't like the word "Movie"
above. I don't think you're creating a movie. Most probably
you're setting up a stage. You're renting a theater to let the show
happen. Not even knowing the stage size in advance, btw.

I wonder if just instantiating a movie_root would do that already.
In that case the factory you're suggesting would pretty much be
a movie_rootFactory (yes, it's time to rename movie_root ;P)

Eh.. me neither, but I belive it'd be worth giving it a try to avoid
designing a whole new abstraction to fight with dragons that might be
dead already.
