It was saved last year but NBC Washington is reporting that it needs to be saved again:

“Rauch tells us that HBO — which has traditionally backed the movie event — hasn’t yet determined its 2010 budget. “Hence, our renewed effort to demonstrate how strongly the community supports and loves SOTG,” Rauch told us in an e-mail today.”

    Meh, for at the facebook groups I’ve joined and emails I spammed friends with last year, when I finally got to Screen on the Green, it was so overcrowded, and the audio so faint that I’m not sure I care this time. The movies they choose are total classics, but really not the sort to show outdoors, where a drive-in B movie is best. I had lots of fun once I defected across the river to the superhero series at Crystal Screen, which doesn’t need saving, and had over five times the number of films.

    Oh, give me a freakin’ break. HBO gets something like $20 of my money a month, along with a few million others. Surely they can spare the pocket change it must take to project some crappy old movies on a blow-up screen down on the Mall.
