Funeral services for legendary Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert will be held Monday at Holy Name Cathedral.
The 10 a.m. service at 730 N. State Street will be open to friends and fans, although seating will be limited.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to The Ebert Foundation, a nonprofit that supports arts and education programs. Donations should be sent to Northern Trust, 50 S. LaSalle St., Chicago, 60603.
A memorial tribute is also being planned for Thursday, April 11, although details have not yet been finalized.
Ebert, 70, died Thursday in Chicago after a battle with cancer. The Pulitzer Prize winning critic reviewed movies for the Chicago Sun-Times for 46 years and on TV for 31 years.
