Screen on the Green Canceled?

We Love DC is reporting that HBO has canceled this year's Screen on the Green. The blog writes:

"HBO has cancelled the long-running Screen on the Green program for 2009, according to a representative from HBO’s consumer affairs department."

So no Double Indemnity on the Mall, no Rebel Without A Cause under the stars. No reason was given for the cancellation of this summer event.

DCist confirms the bad news.

    Total bummer, man. Why'd they have to harsh my mellow on such a pleasant day?

    Not to fear, Wolf Trap has got you covered. We're offering our own Screen on the Green type gatherings this summer, but we'll let you bring your own food and drink (alcohol included.) Wolf Trap is screening the Wizard of Oz with live score accompaniment from the National Symphony Orchestra on July 24, and The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers in HD with live score accompaniment, and full chorus on August 28 and 29.
