Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and the Piedmont Park Conservancy today announced that the popular outdoor movie series “Screen on the Green” will be held at Piedmont Park this year. The Conservancy had previously canceled the series earlier this year when its main corporate sponsor, Peachtree TV, withdrew.
Comcast, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines and Georgia Natural Gas are the new corporate sponsors of the series which will continue during its traditional Thursday night timeslot during the summer. Delta will be the main sponsor.
“As you know, we thought we would have to cancel the 'Screen on the Green' series this summer,” Reed said during a press conference held at Piedmont Park's Magnolia Hall. “However, when four wonderful companies, who have always been strong advocates for the city, learned earlier this month that 'Screen on the Green' would not continue this year, they stepped up with really, really strong support.
