Archbishop John Roach led a protest near University Ave. and Dale Street in St. Paul -- along with Mayor George Latimer -- against the numerous adult entertainment establishments that lined the streets at the time. A target of Roach's protest was the Faust Theatre (originally opened in 1912) which was owned by well known adult entertainment establishment owner Ferris Alexander. After years of protest, the Faust was purchased by the city of St. Paul and demolished in 1989. Here's the archive from our friends at TCMediaNow.
