CU’s Conference On World Affairs To Honor Roger Ebert

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Organizers of University of Colorado’s Conference on World Affairs say they are planning a full slate of tributes throughout the week to honor film critic Roger Ebert.

Ebert, who died Thursday, participated in the annual conference for more than 40 years. The conference begins Monday.

He helped create Cinema Interruptus in 1975. For four days during the conference’s run, any member of the audience could freeze the featured film in progress, yelling “Stop,” to make a point or ask questions about the movie.
