COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A judge has ruled that a Columbus theater is not required to screen children’s movies in the summer, settling a lawsuit filed by the historic cinema’s former owner.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1Kvu5LA ) Charles Adrian filed the suit in 2013 claiming his contract to sell Columbus’ Lincoln Theatre to the city included an agreement to show the films on Saturday mornings during the summer months for $1.

Children’s features were shown for a period in 2014, but the Lincoln Theatre Association ended the program after the theater was unable to recoup enough money to cover expenses.

Officials say the theater lost about $7,000 on the program.

Judge Charles Schneider ruled that the association and Columbus honored the contract, which stated that the program should continue “for as long as feasible.”
