The Columbia Opera House (321 5th) showed movies for a time and the small building just to the east of it (323 5th) also was a movie theater in the 1910s.

The Ritz Theatre is still standing. I just drove by a few months ago. It is at 523 Driftwood, just north of 5th Street. It was constructed between 1917 and 1926 and appears on the 1927 Sanborn Fire Insurance map. According to local history sources, an Eddie Osipowicz was responsible for building/operating the theater.
