CHICAGO (AP) - Mourners have packed a downtown Chicago church to remember acclaimed film critic Roger Ebert.

Pallbearers carried Ebert's casket up the steps of the Holy Name Cathedral for the Monday morning Mass attended by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Ebert died Thursday at age 70 after a long battle with cancer. He worked for the Chicago Sun-Times for more than 40 years.

There will be another chance for the public to pay tribute to Ebert. Organizers are planning a memorial for Thursday evening at the Chicago Theater. It will include music, moments from Ebert's TV show "At the Movies" and personal tributes.

Thursday's memorial is open to the public, but seating must be reserved in advance.
