Roger Ebert Memorial At The Chicago Theater: A Touching Memorial For A Legendary Critic

The entertainment industry is still mourning the death of legendary film critic Roger Ebert after he lost his life to cancer last Thursday.

In addition to his public funeral earlier this week, the Captivate Marketing Group held their own memorial service at the Chicago Theater in the late critic's hometown yesterday.

The service, which was titled Roger Ebert: A Celebration of Life featured a slew of filmmakers and directors, such as Andrew Davis and Julie Dash, as well as acting siblings Joan and John Cusack, who wanted to pay their respects.

Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker said of the visionary film critic:

"Roger Ebert is probably the most influential film critic in the world. He was a poet of the people."

The Hollywood Reporter's film critic Todd McCarthy added:

"He was a populist without prejudice. … You always felt the real guy behind the words."

There were three screens set up at the theater to play the opening sequence of the film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, which was written by Roger himself.

The night ended on the heartwarming image of his wife, Chaz Ebert, thanking each individual member of the Soul Children of Chicago, who performed As and Lift Him Up earlier in the evening.

It's hard to put into words the huge impact the iconic critic has put in the film industry, so we'll just give this memorial and all of the love he's receiving two thumbs up. You are and will forever will be deeply missed, Roger.
