i have this button inside a movie clip, and when i try to put an actionscript for it to go to another scene when u click on the button, it wont go there. it just stays inside the movie clip. i tried using code like

on (release) {
_root.gotoAndStop("recent exhibitions", 65);

and i also tried:

on (release) {
_parent.gotoAndStop("recent exhibitions", 65);

but for some reason it just wont go outside the movieclip.
i even tried telling the button (on release) to go to another frame within that same movie clip, and then have an action on that frame to go to the other scene, but all it does is load that scene inside the movie clip, when i want the whole page to change (not just the movie clip).

please help! thanks ;]

It's not clear to me where that scene is located. Is it in the new movie or the old one?

Why not use the load movie command or get url to load the new movie entirely? That way you can create more pages for your project, which is always better - spreading swf over several pages helps, as each page gets spidered by SE and you can add details within the meta tag/titles to reflect the specific dat in your swf.
