(AP) Actors John Cusack and Chris Tucker, along with Hollywood and independent film directors will honor the late movie critic Roger Ebert at a Chicago memorial service.

Ebert's family, friends, fellow critics and others in the entertainment industry are scheduled to attend the Thursday evening event. It will be at the Chicago Theatre, where Ebert attended screenings for many years.

Ebert died last week at age 70, after a long battle with cancer.

The memorial is to include music from a gospel choir, footage from television shows featuring Ebert and fellow critic Gene Siskel and tributes from his widow, Chaz Ebert.

Ebert also will be honored next week at Ebertfest, his annual film festival in Champaign.
