The description page for the photo Seymour Cox links to above gives the address of the Ideal Theatre as 528 S. Main Street, which is the address of the later Orpheum Theatre.

The building in which the Ideal/Orpheum was located is the Zelleken Block, which was built no later than 1891 and originally housed retail space on the ground floor. I’m not sure when the Ideal was replaced by the Orpheum, or if there was a gap between their periods of operation.
