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.

“Fun and exceptionally clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The theatre is small, but it is perfect. Volunteers work the theatre, which is supported by the patrons. Saw Quartet. You can get popcorn and soda, wine or beer. Great place. Wish we had one of these in Charlotte.

“elegant and intimate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Best old fashioned popcorn I can remember and a well stocked wine and beer list. Seating was the comfortable and it was immaculate.

“Fun and different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Where else can you have a glass of wine while watching a movie? Feels like old Hollywood. Multiplex but feels intimate. Very fun place to visit.

“Sweet little theater. Great movies.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Run by smart people, this theater has first run films not shown at your average multiplex. Foreign and indie films fresh from the festival circuit.

“Movie Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

if you want a feeling of "old time movies" this is the best in KW.Lots of foreign films and small quaint atmosphere. Great to just stop in and enjoy the small personal quietness and enjoy a film at the same time.Some people wouldn't think of "going to the movies" on a vacation but this is truly a great "part" of a vacation...and be sure to get a picture with Marilyn.This could never be a disappointment because of the experience in itself. Oh don't forget the air conditioning!
