The Big Deal: ‘Life Itself’ Screening At The Landmark Magnolia Theatre

by Gila Espinoza 25 Jun 2014 8:30 AM

Roger Ebert was an author, Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic, social commentator, and one-half of the legendary film critic team Siskel and Ebert.  The Chicago critics from rival newspapers had viewers tuning in to their review show not so much to see if a film got two thumbs up or down, but to see the sparring match that preceded it. Later Ebert battled cancer for years. When he lost his speech, he became an influential cultural voice.  A documentary based on Ebert’s memoir Life Itself, will be hitting the theaters on July 4. Win this Big Deal and win a pass good for two to the preview screening on July 2, at the Landmark Magnolia Theatre.
