A change in en­ter­tain­ment cover­age re­flects chang­ing times

Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS - Chris Fusco Ex­ec­u­tive Ed­i­tor

Given the changes the coro­n­avirus con­tin­ues to make in how we spend our free time, we’ve de­ter­mined that the Weekend Plus sec­tion no longer makes sense to pro­duce for our Thurs­day print edi­tions. This change takes ef­fect to­day.

There sim­ply aren’t enough live mu­sic, theater, dance and other cul­tural hap­pen­ings to keep the sec­tion as ro­bust as we’d like, so we’re tak­ing the pages that had been de­voted to Weekend Plus and shift­ing them to other days of the week for now.

This change won’t de­crease the num­ber of col­umns you’ll read by our Richard Roeper, one of the na­tion’s mar­quee movie and TV colum­nists, and we’re rein­vent­ing our Weekend Plus “One-Minute Movie Critic” into an on­line col­lec­tion of Roeper re­views at sun­times. com/movie-re­views.

We’ll con­tinue to run “The Mix” col­umn in Thurs­day’s reg­u­lar en­ter­tain­ment sec­tion to prep you for events — vir­tual or other­wise — for the weekend ahead. And while re­views “From the Ebert Ar­chive” won’t be run­ning at a weekly ca­dence, we in­tend to con­tinue show­cas­ing Roger Ebert’s time­less writ­ings when they can shed light on the cul­tural events of the mo­ment.

Fi­nally, rest as­sured ad­vice and horo­scope fans: Dear Abby’s col­umn and Ge­or­gia Ni­cols’ horo­scopes will con­tinue to run as usual. Please email cus­tom­erser­vice@

sun­times.com if you have any ques­tions, and thank you for sup­port­ing the Sun-Times.
