Elvis Mitchell lands at Movieline

Former NY Times critic joins website

Elvis Mitchell, the former New York Times film critic who was recently dropped from Roger Ebert’s new syndicated show, has landed a job at Movieline.

Mitchell will be chief film critic for the website, which is part of Jay Penske’s MMC network of online properties.

Movieline also hired Jen Yamato as West Coast editor and Alonso Duralde as DVD editor.

Mitchell, who hosts the KCRW radio program “The Treatment,” was initially named co-host of “Ebert Presents At the Movies,” which premieres Jan. 21 on public television. He was dropped without explanation and replaced by Chicago-based film critic Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, who will appear alongside Associated Press film critic Christy Lemire.

“Movieline represents the future of film journalism, and I love what they have been doing,” Mitchell said in a written statement.
