The syndicated show "At the Movies" is being cancelled at the end of its current season. The show is produced here at ABC7. It currently features hosts A.O. Scott and Michael Phillips.

Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert were the original movie critics and hosts of the program when it started 24 seasons ago.

The show's distributor Disney/ABC Domestic Television said the program has a rich history, but from a business perspective, the series was no longer sustainable.

The last original broadcast will be the weekend of August 14.
