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."
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!"
