In section 6 of the manual on page 117 (Other shooting functions) it says:

Zooming in more closely on subjects: the digital zoom (p.64) is available.

So I think optical zoom is not available in the movie mode.

OK I see why you might think that , but I disagree. I think Canon call it 'Other Shooting Functions' to describe what hasn't already been covered, and they call it digital zoom. In the movies chapter they just called it zoom.
Also they say 'more' closely - as if perhaps you've already zoomed a bit...

You could be right of course - only time (or a bona fide expert) will tell!
