Ebert & Roeper Movie Review Video Site Unveiled8 Aug, 2007 By: Billy Gil
Disney-ABC is making available its film review show “At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper” on the Web site www.AtTheMoviesTV.com, with a searchable library of 5,000 online video movie reviews.
The online library, dubbed “The Balcony Archive,” has more than 20 years of reviews spanning back to the days of “Siskel & Ebert” before co-host Gene Siskel's passing in 1999. The show currently is in its 22nd season.
Theatrical and DVD reviews will be posted to the site following each weekly television broadcast of the show.
“For years this was a dream,” Ebert said. “Now I am exhilarated that it is a reality, thanks to the enormous effort of digitalizing something like 1,000 programs.”
