The popcorn is great and there are a bunch of toppings you can put on. There is also beer and wine sold at the concession. Check... More

Great experience. Friendly staff. I really like the man who showed us dozens of different topping for pop-corn. He was fun and welcoming to English tourists. Fantastic cinema.

It's so warm and inviting and the staff from Glenn on of the managers to the folks selling snacks are super. Plus you can buy a cocktail to enjoy while you watch the movie. They have done... More

Love the Tropic! Small, intimate surroundings with excellent choice of snacks. Always a good movie to catch…and a great place to run into friends.

The Tropic is run by volunteers who love film. The concessions are great -- beer, wine & cider; delicious snacks & ice cream, fresh popcorn; plus the usual candy and soda. Get there a little early to chat with the volunteers and enjoy a glass of wine in the lounge. Tip: towards the back of the lobby to the left,... More

No complaints....If your tired of partying every night and looking for a break, this is a great place to relax and catch a movie. Air-conditioning, clean and comfortable at reasonable prices. You even have the option to add butter to your popcorn!

The cinema was reminiscent of the old style theatres. Loved the blending bags and flavors you could add at the bar provided. Very nice touch! Lovely chance to cool off on a super hot and humid afternoon!
