Goodbye, At the Movies

by |


The balcony is closed. Last night was the final episode of At the Movies, which for 35 years provided a forum for some of the most insightful and impassioned movie criticism on television. Beginning as Sneak Previews in 1975 with a pair of Chicago-based film critics (Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert), At the Movies had a number of co-hosts and cosmetic changes over the years, but it endured because of its ingeniously simple concept: two people talking about the movies with insight, wit, and passion. The influence of At the Movies on contemporary film criticism is difficult to overstate -- it's certainly inspired a generation of film geeks currently critiquing movies in print and on the web.Back to Article
