Ebertfest To Pay Tribute to Roger Ebert With Bronze Statue


This year’s “Ebertfest” film festival in Champaign-Urbana will feature a new, lasting tribute to the late film critic Roger Ebert, who founded the festival.

 

A bronze statue of Ebert will be unveiled next to the Virginia Theatre. It will feature a likeness of the critic, who died last year from cancer at the age of 70.

 

The Ebert sculpture will feature him with his iconic “thumbs up” pose. On either side of Ebert will be two empty theater chairs, where attendees can sit and pose for pictures.

 

The sculpture is titled “C-U at the Movies.”
