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.

“Great Theather with amazing atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

great clean theater with friendly staff. Where else can you sip on Cabernet and watch a movie in Kw! Food and drinks are great and movies are great too. With a staff that volunteers their time for others to enjoy themselves the cinema cant be beat!

“Charming venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Happened upon this small cinema, and decided to take in a movie. A lovely space, fantastic lobby and sitting areas. Bonus: the most comfortable seats ever!

Feel like you want to see a film with that home theater feel...it happens here...ok we got the people who think they need to narrate the film to each other but hey it could be worse.

“Makes seeing any movie an event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

They don't call this the Southernmost Hollywood Theater, but they could. From Seward Johnson's Marilyn outfront to the Hurrell portraits inside, you can tell the folks who designed and run this theater really love movies. The refreshments are a cut above multiplex fare and so is audience behavior. I have never heard a cellphone go off or noisy conversation during the main feature. I can think of no more uniquely conch way to spend a rainy afternoon in Key West.

“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.
