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.
