It’s current use is as an interpretative nature center.
From its banquet hall days.
Current Google view shows a barber shop at that address.
The website has more information about the history of the building.
The theatre has been repurposed to a music shop called CD Source, buying and selling CDs, DVDs, and the like. The marquee has been retained. Website: https://cdsourcerockford.com/
Even before required by the ADA. Very impressive.
Added two early street scenes and a 1944 ad.
Functions should include performing arts. No movies scheduled on Facebook page.
Just added a 1940 street scene to Photos showing the Ideal and quite a crowd of people. Might be some kind of holiday.

I uploaded an auditorium picture to the photos section. It’s called the Vaudeville Grand which could be this theater which was located on Grand Avenue. Two of the other photos show vaudeville being featured at the Orpheum so this might have been the same theater.
Open again on a limited basis with first-run films.
1959 photo downloaded to photos.
Duplicate of picture uploaded in 2012.
Marcus will reopen this theatre on august 28 2020 with Covid19 restrictions in place.
