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.

“simply a hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Immaculate, stylish and so comfortable. BEST popcorn that is old fashioned with a great "toppings" bar and a fine selection of wines,upscale snacks and beverages.
"fine old" Hollywood style decor and seating is ample and roomy in intimate viewing theaters.

“A film experience with flair!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

You can watch very new movies and have a glass of very good wine or beer and great popcorn and sit in a comfortable theatre. (one of 5). What could be better. Membership reduces prices even further and they are already reasonable!!
