Currying a non-anonymous function (uses($app))

I'm have a function for a route that is going to be reused so I broke it out of the $app->get route and went from this:

$app->get('/movie', function($id) use($app){
$app->get('/movie', 'getMovieByID');
function getMovieByID($id){
but how can I get access to $app within my 'getMovieByID' function? I also don't really understand currying very well as it is a new concept to me, but is there some sort of accepted way to accomplish what I'm looking for?

    If this is Slim 2, you can pass it in through a not documented method called setParams.

    $app->get('/movie', 'getMovieByID')->setParams([$app]);
    function getMovieByID($app, $id){

    I haven't tested this with a single function before, only with methods in classes but it should work.
