Last year, the Illinois Marathon and Ebertfest fell on the same week. Organizers made it easier for moviegoers by switching the days.
From April 17 - 21, you can see films at the Virginia Theatre. The newly-remodeled building will be ready by then.
This year, the festival has an A-list movie star coming to town. Jack Black's, Bernie, will be shown during the festival. It's a comedy about a funeral director who kills his girlfriend and covers it up. Black will attend the showing.
