Information for this tour was contributed by Vincent Astor.

The Idlewild building has operated under many names. The two cinema names were the Idlewild and Capri Art (adult); the Front Street Theatre was legitimate but did have an occasional film. It has been several concert venues, was once divided into retail space, was once a gay disco and is now a banquet center called The Vine. The balcony level remains but only a fraction of original decor off the old lobby area.
