The original format, which ran from 30 October 1986 to 12 May 2004, had two presenters, David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz. Stratton and Pomeranz left for the ABC in early 2004, expressing dissatisfaction at high-level decisions at SBS. They soon had a new program with a similar format, At the Movies.
SBS continued The Movie Show, which underwent a style change to become more appealing to a younger market. Three new presenters were brought in: Megan Spencer, Fenella Kernebone and Jaimie Leonarder. Marc Fennell presented a segment reviewing newly released DVDs. The final episode of The Movie Show aired in June 2006, after the show was axed due to bad ratings.
Interactive 10-minute formatEdit
In 2007, The Movie Show returned with a new interactive 10-minute format, presented by Lisa Hensley and Michael Adams.
