Just reading the not-commented stuff I see around line 165 you create a JPanel, create a JScrollPane using that panel, add the JScrollPane to you (main?) frame.
Problem is, I don't see you adding anything to the panel inside the scrollpane.

If you want a window with everything in it scrollable you need to:
create a JPanel
put everything into that panel
create a JScrollPane using that panel
add the scrollpane to your window

erm...should i do like this? sry im newbie...im learning...

JPanel panel = new JPanel();
listOfMovies frame=new listOfMovies ();
frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
frame.setTitle("List of Movies"); //set title of thewindow
frame.setSize(800,600); //size of the window
frame.setVisible(true); //visible the window
frame.setLocationRelativeTo (null); //center the window
JScrollPane scrollBar = new JScrollPane (panel);
scrollBar.add(panel);

1/ put Image or ImageIcon to the Java Package,
- if you are using some IDE then just create new Java Package
- otherwise http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/deployment/index.html

2/ for this AbsoluteLayoutZOO you can use GridLayot or BoxLaout http://download.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/uiswing/layout/index.html

3/ you can set different Layout for each JPanel

for public listOfMovies() {.... }

1/ remove JFrame + JSchrollPane + JPanel from main method and replace that just with

public static void main(String[] args) {
        Runnable doRun = new Runnable() {

            public void run() {
                listOfMovies jf = new listOfMovies();
            }
        };
        SwingUtilities.invokeLater(doRun);
    }

2/ create a JPanel put here JLabels + JButtons

3/ create JScrollPane

scrollBar.setViewportView(panel);

and so on
