When there is a movie that you want to see while on vacation, i recommend that you see it at the Tropic. I understand that it was just renovated and it is very comfortable with a good sound and projection system. Largely manned by friendly...More
Went to see a quick movie and when I walked in I wasn't expecting to find it to be so cute and quaint. Not your usual theatre.
Nice old fashioned looking candy counter and small theatres but they don't get as crowded so we were...More
Decent seating, usual snacks , if you used to reclining chairs and dining and all that stuff this theater may not be for you. However if the movie and a comfortable chair and cool air conditioning do it for your viewing needs, you should be...More
We checked the web yesterday morning and a movie was showing at 3:35. We attempted to buy tickets but the website directed us to Mama Mia instead of the Mission Impossible movie listed at 3:35. So we tried to phone. The first showing was at...More
We tried to purchase tickets online for a Sunday movie. Couldn't do it online for that particular movie. So we tried to call and ask what was the matter. No answer all day. Now it is Monday, we saw the same movie we wanted to...More
I missed the visit on the inside. However, the outside draws you. The Marilyn Monroe statue outside is delightful. It prompts you to be wowed. When I saw it I could not believe my eyes. It is life like size and standing directly over a...More
This is a surprisingly nice little theater just off Duval St. I stopped in to see Jurassic World when the temp. hit 96 degrees. The sound and picture quality were excellent, and the seating comfortable.

Parking is a huge issue for all the businesses in Old Town Key West. However, for our members we offer access to heavily discounted parking after 5:00 every night at the post office which is only a block away. If you're not a member then perhaps you'll think about becoming one to get that benefit.

Tropic Cinema (3 Replies)
Does everyone know there is a cute movie theatre in town? I have always said I would go when it rained. Happily, I never have.

Right now it’s our only movie theater as the regal has not opened yet from Irma. They usually have some great first run movies as well as some sweet lesser known surprises but since the regal closed they’ve included some blockbusters that I’m not interested in but has brought in more of the mainstream crowds. The tropic is a mostly volunteer run organization and we buy a membership yearly to keep it running and get movie discounts. Definitely check it out on a rainy day.

Openings and Closings (24 Replies)
Two places have opened on Eaton to satisfy your sweet tooth. Cakes by Karol has moved to the corner of Eaton and Simonton. They have cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and other sweets, in addition, they also have coffee, sandwiches, and breakfast items. Glazed Donuts has just opened next to the Tropic Cinema. Their chocolate covered glazed donut is fantastic!! I heard The Sports Page closed last night, and a real shocker... Albertson's is supposed to close April 28th.

Hi KeyLimey, Cakes by Karol sounds tasty! It's been over 2 years since we've been to KW-I miss it and all of the friendly folks we've met!

With the change in weather I would just like to mention the Tropic Cinema. Going to a movie is the perfect thing to do when the weather turns, like this week. The Tropic has been extended since I last visited and it is now a really great place to visit (not that it wasn't before). The two people in front of us drank the bottle of wine they had purchased in the lobby while watching the movie! Only in KW!!!

I'm freezing my butt off in 13 degree weather and you have the audacity to tell me that getting lit in a theater in KW is a cold weather activity??!! No, no, no. Stop. You'll make me hate you.
