Screen on the Green Cancelled in 2016

very cool.

Screen on the Green cancelled but, for good?

Screen on the Green, a perennial Washington, DC summer tradition, is one of my favorite things to do. Nothing beats watching a movie with the U.S. Capitol glowing in the background (see photo above).

Organizers say HBO and Comcast have decided to forego hosting Screen on the Green and that they’re talking with the Trust for the National Mall about the future of the event.

“HBO is very proud of our 17 years of Screen on the Green on the Mall,” HBO said in a statement. “Unfortunately, this year we have decided to move on and place our resources elsewhere. We thank everyone that has assisted and attended for their many years of support.”

If you want to help save the perennial tradition, visit Friends of Screen on the Green or send them an email.

Will the summer movie festival come back to the National Mall? What are your thoughts? Who would be a good sponsor?
