Tilda Swinton Leads a Massive Dance-Along in Remembrance of Roger Ebert

As they say, the show must go on. And what better way to honor the late Roger Ebert than with a theater packed full with movie lovers?

Which is exactly what happened at this year's Ebertfest in Champaign, Ill., where Ebert's wife, Chaz, and over 1,500 attendees gather in the Virginia Theater. And also where Tilda Swinton led a "spiritual service" of sorts, a dance-along to Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything."

"If we dance up here, you're going to sit and watch us and laugh," Tilda explained about the tradition that sprung from festivals in her native Scotland. "So, no observers allowed. Participants only."

With that, she dances through the aisles of the theater like Ellen DeGeneres, if Ellen DeGeneres were sent here from another planet and had had plenty of time to rest up in a glass box.

It's truly a site to see and would surely make Ebert proud, as Chaz explains, "That's why [Tilda is] one of our favorite festival guests!"
