2009 Movies[edit]

On May 12, 2009, HBO announced that it was cancelling its sponsorship of Screen on the Green,[6] and the future of the popular outdoor movie series was in doubt while another sponsor was sought.

Almost immediately, a Facebook fan group appeared, rallying a grassroots effort to save "Screen on the Green". Led by Jesse B Rauch, President and Founder of "Friends of Screen on the Green," over 2,500 Facebook users subscribed to the group. A massive e-mail campaign was launched to find new sponsors, and on June 10, 2009, Comcast and the Trust for the National Mall announced they would join forces with Time Warner's HBO to bring back Screen on the Green to the National Mall in the summer of 2009.
