Elvis Mitchell Hooks Back Up with the New York Times

It’s truly amazing how journalist and bon vivant Elvis Mitchell manages to hopscotch from one great professional opportunity to another. In the past few months alone, he has jumped from Roger Ebert‘s At the Movies reboot, to Jay Penske‘s Movieline reboot, to now, LACMA’s screening series reboot.

The kicker is that in the case of LACMA, another one of his former employers, the New York Times, will be the presenting sponsor when the museum’s “Film Series” relaunches in the fall. Future generations of media analysts will be able to fill a tar pit with the artifacts of Mitchell’s professional progression. Per today’s press release:

Mitchell will be a full-time staff member at Film Independent and will be working closely with its programming department and LACMA’s curatorial staff to cover a breadth of film that promotes a cinematic dialogue and showcases artistic achievement… He will be starting on July 11 and relocating to Los Angeles.

Many years ago, Mitchell started his man-of-many-hats career by selling tickets at LACMA’s Bing Theater (pictured). Don’t be surprised if he squeezes that into his job description once more. Ticket taker, job maker.
