Funeral today for film critic Ebert

Legendary film critic Roger Ebert will be laid to rest today.

A public memorial service is planned for 10 am at Holy Name Cathedral in Chicago.

The Pulitzer Prize winning writer and long time movie critic for the Chicago Sun Times passed away Thursday at the age of 70 after a long battle with cancer.

It's going to be all about Roger Ebert at the University of Colorado's Conference on World Affairs.

Organizers say they're planning a full slate of tributes to honor the film critic.

Ebert participated in the annual conference for more than 40 years and once called Boulder his "hometown in an alternative universe."

He'll be honored through several speeches, and a brief visual tribute will also be played.
