, an Atlanta tradition, to be cancelled.Screen on the Green
has been a Saturday tradition for thousands of Atlanta residents for the Summer Saturdays for the past 10 years, showing such movies as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original), Jurassic Park, Casablanca, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and many more for free on large screens in Piedmont Park
in Downtown Atlanta.
The past two years, Screen on the Green has seen some controversy
, due to violence breaking out at the showings. Likely due to this, Peachtree TV has announced this year that they will be pulling their sponsorship
, cancelling the Screen on the Green 2012 season.
Let's have a moment of silence for this great festival.
