Life Itself - a documentary about Roger Ebert; discussion at Fido after

Acclaimed director Steve James (HOOP DREAMS) and executive producers Martin Scorsese  and Steven Zaillian present LIFE ITSELF, a documentary film that recounts the inspiring and entertaining life of world-renowned film critic and social commentator Roger Ebert—a story that is by turns personal, funny, painful, and transcendent. Based on his bestselling memoir of the same name, LIFE ITSELF, explores the legacy of Roger Ebert's life, from his Pulitzer Prize-winning film criticism at the Chicago Sun-Times to becoming one of the most influential cultural voices in America.

Dir. Steve James, USA, 2014, 120 min., R, DCP

Discussion and a late dinner at Fido after for those interested.  It's across from Boscos and Sam's. My cell# is below if you don't spot us.

Parking information:

—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.

—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.

—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).

Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 6:20 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.  If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.

“(Steve) James cuts—as in all of his best work—straight to the human heart of the matter, celebrating both the writer and the man, the one inseparable from the other, largely in Ebert's own words.” —Variety

    Hard Day's Night has been held over by BelCourt till the 20th. Saw it and it was wonderful. The film and the music had been restored and the movie ha lost none of its charm.

    For Boomers it will be a bittersweet visit to the past. To younger viewers it will give a chance to see The Beatles when they were still four friends having fun. Definitely worth the price of admission
