The movie starts at 2:00pm - I'll be downstairs by the theatre entrance about 1:45. This documentary by Steve James (Hoop Dreams) walks us through the life of the late, great Roger Ebert, from his childhood in Urbana, Illinois, to his Pulitzer Prize-winning tenure at the Chicago Sun-Times, to his TV career with Gene Siskel, to his marriage to Chaz Hammelsmith, and finally the bout with cancer that took his voice. Based on Ebert’s wonderful, bestselling memoir, this heartwarming film celebrates a man who helped popularize film criticism and grew to become one of America’s strongest media voices.
