The Idlewild Theatre was opened in 1939 by Chalmers and Edward Cullins and partner Nate Evans. Edward ran this theatre; it was one of the larger neighbourhood theatres and had a balcony.
In the 1960’s it was remodeled into a live theatre named Front Street Theatre (after the street where the company was first located). It went through an adult movie period, was a music venue under several names(more names than any other building in Memphis), was divided up into retail spaces and then cleared out again.
It is presently in use as a special events venue with only the lounges and balcony structure remaining from its early days.
