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.

“A place to chill out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

They have several movies playing so that there is something for everyone. We dropped by one scorching afternoon for a cooing break. The atmosphere took us back in time.

Four screens showing a variety of indie and documentary films. Auditoriums are very nice, seating is good as are sound and quality of video.

Unique, cozy, yet cutting edge mini-multiplex showing standard and limited release films. Whether a film buff or tourist dodging the rain don't miss this place.

“Best movie theater in KW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I like selection of indie and mainstream movies, the several different screen rooms are intimate and comfortable and the snack bar serves beer and wine which can be taken into any of the several screening rooms.
