I would say that "unmovable" is the more correct (if not more used) spelling out of the two.
However, it's more common to say "immovable" in everyday speech. I do realise that unmovable and immovable have slightly different meanings (i.e. unmovable for emotions/people and immovable for physical objects), but they're mostly interchangeable.
Unmovable is the "more" correct spelling, although immovable is used more commonly than either. Unmoveable looks better to my eye but I agree it is more archaic, although I did come across it in a recently published art magazine from the UK.
