|Jack L. Warner
|Parent||Kinney National Company (1969-1970)|
Warner Bros.-Seven Arts, Inc. was an American entertainment company formed in 1967, when Seven Arts Productions acquired Jack L. Warner's controlling interest in Warner Bros. for $32 million  and merged with it.
The acquisition included the black an white Looney Tunes (plus the non-Harman and Ising Merrie Melodies) library and Warner Bros. Records plus Reprise Records. Later that same year, Warner Bros.-Seven Arts purchased Atlantic Records. Those record labels were combined in 1970 with two other acquisitions (Elektra Records and its sister label Nonesuch Records) in a new holding company, Warner-Elektra-Atlantic, under the direction of Mo Ostin  and Joe Smith.
It was once again renamed Warner Bros. in 1969 after Kinney National Company bought the company.
Acquisition by Kinney
Warner Bros.-Seven Arts was acquired in 1969 by Kinney National Company, who deleted "Seven Arts" from the company name, reestablishing it as Warner Bros. Due to a financial scandal over its parking operations, Kinney National spun off its non-entertainment assets in 1972 (as National Kinney Corporation) and changed its name to Warner Communications Inc..
