Dear PoP – Screen on the Green Canceled

Screen on the Green, originally uploaded by lonecellotheory.

“Hi PoP!

Do you know any more info on why HBO canceled Screen On The Green this year? As much as I can’t sit in one place for a long time, and have only been able to attend one movie a year for the last two years, I really enjoy it and am sad that it’s not happening.”

DCist reports:

“According to Doninger, the cancellation of Screen on the Green had to do with financial issues involving the premium cable network’s sponsorship of the event.”

This economy is ruining everything! A Facebook page has been created to save the event. But hopefully another generous sponsor will pick up where HBO left off. This was always a great event. Ugh.
