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.

“Like Europe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Key West Film Society has done a great job with the space they have with first run art, indie and Hollywood blockbusters. Real butter on you freshly made popcorn and dozens of condiments available included in the comparatively reasonable price. Also craft beers and decent wine! My only complaint is 3/4 of the cinemas are quite small, leaving you with only 1 good sized venue. Still a rarely seen, classic movie house by todays American standards

“I love this place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Such a quaint little theatre, and the people who work there are super friendly... They always give VERY generous pours on their wines, to boot!!
One of my favorite afternoon outings during our annual trip to the Keys!

“Overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

It's just a movie theatre. Old and unique, but so is the screen and sound staff laughed at us when we didn't know which theatre was the our movie was playing in. Not a big deal. Certainly not worth number 1 attraction in key west as of July 2013. Go if its raining but don't waste your time if you think it's going to be some kind of amazing experience... It's not.
