Special Guest at Ebertfest Screening Tonight
Ebertfest is underway in Champaign, and today's heavy rain didn't deter moviegoers. This is the 15th year of the festival, and the first after famed film critic Roger Ebert's passing on April 4.
The first screening today was at 1 p.m., and showings continue throughout the evening.
The final movie tonight is a screening of "Bernie." The film's star, Jack Black, is scheduled to be in attendance.
The festival continues through Sunday.
