Spike Lee to attend 'Do the Right Thing' screening at Ebertfest

By Marie Blake,

Spike Lee will attend a screening of Do the Right Thing at this year's Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival.

The Associated Press reports that this year will mark the 25th anniversary screening of Spike Lee's 1989 hit film Do the Right Thing.

Lee will attend the screening at this year's Ebertfest, a festival that showcases films which were not given enough attention, but were highly praised by Ebert himself.

Ebert gave Do the Right Thing four stars after its 1989 debut.

According to Variety, Oliver Stone will reportedly also attend the 25th anniversary screening of his film Born on the Fourth of July.

Steve James will screen his Ebert documentary Life Itself, and comedian Patton Oswalt will attend the screening of the 2011 film Young Adult, in which he stars.

Ebertfest will take place April 23 to the 27 in Champaign, Illinois at the Virginia Theatre, and will be hosted by Ebert's wife, Chaz. This year marks the second Ebertfest since Ebert's death last April.
