‘Ebert Presents’ Is Going Away … but Hopefully Not Forever

The Projector

We've known for a month that "Ebert Presents at the Movies" might have to pull the plug due to a lack of funding, and last night Ebert made it official: The show will go on hiatus at the end of the year. While we wait to hear about the program's future, here's a segment from a special episode that hosts Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky did early in the year where they talk about the films that made them want to be critics. Say what you want about the show, but don't you dare accuse these two of not liking movies. "Ebert Presents" was all about its movie love: We hope we see it back sometime in 2012.
