2010 deadCENTER Film Festival panelist Elvis Mitchell has been tapped to co-host Roger Ebert’s revived “At The Movies” show on PBS. Ebert announced the news on his blog Friday, and news spread throughout the indie film world over the weekend.
“Roger Ebert Presents At The Movies” will feature Mitchell and AP critic Christy Lemire in the traditional “Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down” roles, with contributions from Kim Morgan, Omar Moore, and Ebert himself. The show is scheduled to begin airing in January 2011. Congrats to Elvis and all involved. (Just make sure you make time to return to the festival next year!)
