Throughout her career, Chambers frequently returned to San Francisco and the Bay Area—whether to promote a project, film a movie, make personal appearances, or perform at the O’Farrell Theater.
One particular performance in 1985 made national headlines. San Francisco’s then-mayor, Dianne Feinstein, never a fan of the Mitchell brothers, wanted to crack down on adult theaters in the city. What better way to draw attention to the issue than to arrest the country’s most famous porn star at the city’s premier adult establishment? A sting operation was ordered and Chambers was arrested during her performance and carried out of the theater nude by several San Francisco police officers. She was booked on charges of soliciting prostitution, but the charges were later dropped. In fact, the night of the arrest, many of the police officers lined up to have their photos taken with Chambers in her jail cell.
Feinstein’s plan backfired. Locals were more angered by the sting operation and Chambers’s arrest than the idea of too many adult theaters operating in the city. When Chronicle columnist Warren Hinckle wrote a piece criticizing the San Francisco Police Department for the arrest, he was arrested the next day for walking his dog without a leash. This angered the public even more. The Mitchell brothers, never ones to pass up free publicity, posted Mayor Feinstein’s unlisted phone number on the theater’s marquee along with the words “For a good time, call Dianne.”
