The balcony has reopened.
And today at 1:30p.m. on PBS television station KQED channel 9 San Francisco will for the first time be able to see the return of Roger Ebert to television with his show “Ebert Presents At The Movies”. The show will have several repeat airings. New episodes will appear weekly.
The new balcony has new hosts. Film critics Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky review movies each week, and the popular thumbs-up-thumbs down format returns. They will review a diverse array of films, including independent films like ‘Barney’s Version’, ‘The Way Back’ and ‘Another Year’, in the first couple of new shows.
Each week preeminent film critic Roger Ebert will appear in a segment called “Roger’s Office”.
The show will feature occasional contributions from a number of film critics (Kim Morgan, Omar Moore, Nell Minow, Kartina Richardson and David Poland.) Veteran news analyst and political commentator Jeff Greenfield will also make periodic contributions.
If you miss the show on television, don’t despair. Starting early next week (Jan. 25) on the fully-unveiled website, each show episode will be archived on the web at www.ebertpresents.com.
