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.

“Silver Linings Saybook”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This a cute indy cinema. You still buy your ticket from a real person, the old fashioned way, and there's a lovely concessions' store selling booze n sweets. The staff are clearly movie buffs too, with personal recommendations on what to watch next as we left. The only problem we had here is that for the first part of the movie, Silver Linings Playbook, a stupid couple, possibly drunk, kept talking. In the end, I told them to shut up. The cinema is so homely that perhaps they forgot they were actually at the movies, but as another patron shouted at them, "You're not in your f**king lounge now, dude..This isn't TV at home." After 20mins, they left. It was a rainy day, and my guess is they'd been at the beer all day, then decided to go see an Oscar nominated movie, but were either too intoxicated, lacking in brainpower, or both, to appreciate the film and the quality of their surroundings. Don't know how you guard against this though. Don't let the odd idiot put you off taking in a movie at this place which feels way more personal than a multiplex.

“A Jewel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Top quality movies in a top quality facility. The volunteers are great and the concessions are excellent. I am a member of the organization even though I live in Michigan because I want them to succeed.

“very cute, very retro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Went to see movie on a rainy day. The theater was very retro. Only downside was not all of the screens are big. The screen I was in probably held at most 30 people. But overall was clean and a neat retro experience for a rainy day.

“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”

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!
