Ebert Memorial Service Today in Chicago
By AP
CHICAGO, IL - Hollywood and independent film directors, along with Roger Ebert's friends and family, will honor the late movie critic at a memorial service in Chicago.
 
Ebert died last week at age 70 after a long battle with cancer. The memorial is planned for Thursday at the Chicago Theatre, where Ebert attended screenings for many years. Comedian Dick Gregory, "The Fugitive" director Andy Davis and former Playboy CEO Christie Hefner are among those scheduled to attend.
 
The memorial is to include music from a gospel choir, footage from television shows featuring Ebert and fellow critic Gene Siskel and tributes from his widow, Chaz Ebert.
 
Ebert also will be honored next week at Ebertfest, his annual film festival in Champaign.
