TV show description:
This syndicated program features two movie critics discussing, arguing, and critiquing the latest movie releases. Recent releases of VHS and DVD films are also often discussed.
Following their departure from the PBS series Sneak Previews, Chicago newspaper critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert began hosting this syndicated show for Tribune Entertainment.
Tribune eventually replaced Siskel and Ebert with newspaper critic Rex Reed and Entertainment Tonight correspondent Bill Harris. In addition to reviewing movies, they also reported entertainment news. The program was renamed as At the Movie (not to be confused with a later program of the same name which was hosted by Siskel and Ebert).
After two seasons, Harris was replaced by Dixie Whatley, another ET correspondent, and they continued until the show ended two years later.
The details are unknown.
First aired: 1990
