Ebert Revamps At the Movies, Again

Elvis Mitchell has left the At the Movies building.

In a somewhat cryptic blog post last night on the Chicago Sun-Times website, Roger Ebert makes no mention of Mitchell, previously announced as co-host of this month’s At the Movies PBS reboot alongside LA-based AP reviewer Christy Lemire. Instead, it’s now all about a 24-year-old Russian immigrant:

Twitter refiner Roger Ebert announced that he’s relaunching his PBS blockbuster show At the Movies in January of 2011.

Produced and presented by Roger and his wife Chaz Ebert, the show promises to have more critics contributing to the format:

The program’s principal co-hosts will be Christy Lemire, film critic of The Associated Press, and Elvis Mitchell of National Public Radio. Lemire began reviewing for AP in 1999 and was named its first full-time film critic in 2004. She is a Los Angeles native with a mother who loved Fellini and a father who loved Bogart. Mitchell is a former film critic for The New York Times and a contributor to NPR.
