Acclaimed film critic Roger Ebert's funeral will be at a Catholic church in downtown Chicago.
Ebert's funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Monday at Holy Name Cathedral. The Pulitzer Prize-winning movie reviewer died Thursday at age 70 after a long battle with cancer. He worked for the newspaper for more than 40 years.
The funeral is open to friends and fans, but there will be limited seating. Many have offered condolences since Ebert's death, including President Barack Obama, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, actor Robert Redford and filmmaker Steven Spielberg.
The newspaper says a memorial tribute also is scheduled for Thursday. Details for that ceremony are being finalized.
