*Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever (Adults)

Tuesday Mar 5, 2024 6:00pm - 7:00pm
All Locations
Just in time for the Academy Awards, Author Matt Singer will talk about his new book, "Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever." Once upon a time, if you wanted to know if a movie was worth seeing, you didn't check out Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB. You asked whether Siskel & Ebert had given it "two thumbs up."

Award-winning editor and film critic Matt Singer eavesdrops on their iconic balcony set, detailing their rise from making a few hundred dollars a week on local Chicago PBS to securing multimillion-dollar contracts for a syndicated series (a move that convinced a young local host named Oprah Winfrey to do the same). Their influence on the way we talk and think about movies continues to this day. *Registration is required to attend this virtual event; click "register" below. Participants will receive a Zoom meeting invite. 

After the virtual program, we will be awarding a $10 Celebration Cinema gift card and refillable popcorn bucket to two attendees; a gift bag of microwave popcorn and candy to four attendees; and a copy of "Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever" to one attendee. To qualify, winners must attend the online program and be present when the names are drawn.
