    The funeral for acclaimed film reviewer Roger Ebert will be Monday at Holy Name Cathedral in downtown Chicago.

    The legendary Chicago Sun-Times critic died Thursday at age 70 after a long battle with cancer. Ebert's service starts at 10 a.m. and will be open to friends and fans, but there will be limited seating. The newspaper says a memorial tribute also is scheduled for Thursday. Details for that ceremony are being finalized.

    Ebert worked for the Chicago Sun-Times for more than 40 years. He found more fame when he partnered with Chicago Tribune film critic Gene Siskel on their long-running television movie review show.

    Ebert's family asks that donations be sent to The Ebert Foundation instead of flowers. The nonprofit group supports arts and education programs.
