1975. First episode of 'Opening Soon at a Theater New You'
Ebert and Gene Siskel formed the well-known television reviewing duo in 1975 for a show originally tiled "Opening Soon at a Theater Near You." That same year, Ebert won the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism for his 1974 film reviews while at the Chicago Sun-Times.
The first episode featured reviews of the 1975 Chicago Film Festival and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The PBS show was later re-titled "Sneak Previews". In 1982, Siskel and Ebert left PBS for a syndicated program, "At the Movies."
