The Region

March 20, 1987

United Artists Communications will not renew the lease with an embattled adult movie theater in Santa Ana when it expires in 1990, a company official said. The decision came a day after city officials dropped their 11-year effort to shut down the Mitchell Brothers theater, agreeing to pay the theater chain $200,000 and to drop about 40 lawsuits in exchange for a promise to stop advertising its movies on the marquee. United Artists Senior Vice President Arnold Childhouse said there probably "wasn't much thought" about the lease in 1975. But, he said, "we don't enter into those kinds of leases today."
