It's a variable that holds the current movie in the collection while the Where is iterating. You can roughly translate the Where into this:

List<Movie> filteredMovies = new List<Movie>();

foreach (Movie s in movies)
{
    if (s.Title.Contains(searchString))
    {
        filteredMovies.Add(s);
    }
}

movies = filteredMovies;
