I talked to Mark Mitten, movie producer and former Akron resident, about "Life Itself," the lovely documentary about Roger Ebert, which opens locally today. You can read the story here. The Saturday night showing I mentioned in the story is now sold ont. Mitten will also introduce a showing at 4:30 p.m. Saturday. (UPDATE: He will not be at the Sunday showing mentioned in an earlier version of this post.). No word on whether those showings will include a Q&A. I will update this as needed.
A look at how the "American Idol" auditions in Columbus tomorrow will work is here. Quite a contrast to what "Idol" encountered when it brought auditions to Cleveland in 2004.
