Owner description: Tropic Cinema is South Florida's only nonprofit multiplex cinema screening 1st-run indie, foreign and documentary films and Hollywood blockbusters every day. With 4 theaters, state-of-the art projection services and the best concessions stand anywhere (we serve wine and beer and drizzle our popcorn with 100% melted butter), it's no wonder Florida Monthly magazine named Tropic Cinema "Florida's Best Cinema" for four consecutive years.

“So much fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Going to the Tropic Cinema is a real treat. We went to see The Descendents with George Clooney. This cinema is so much fun. The staff is very friendly. I was amazed at the snack bar - beer, wine, Keurig coffee, Godiva chocolate, key lime pie, 10 different toppings for popcorn. It was quite a selection. The theaters aren't very large, nor are the screens but it's very cozy. I look forward to going there again.

We saw this theatre, but did not have time for movies. But they were showing several.

“Civilized Cinema”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Drink a glass of wine whilst sitting in velvet covered seats watching movies that are worth the price of admission! A wonderfully restored 'Art Nouveau" cinema that offers so much more than the usual "movie night"

“Coffeehouse with movies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

If we had known this place had such a nice hanging-out area with tables, food, coffee and such, we'd have shown up earlier for the film! On-street parking (pay and stick a tag on your dash), comfortable seats, both first run and art house films. Clean and attractive place with style. OK, style includes camp, right?! What's not to love about a lifesized fiberglass Marilyn Monroe perpetually whooshing her skirt out front?
