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.

“Best movie theater in KW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I like selection of indie and mainstream movies, the several different screen rooms are intimate and comfortable and the snack bar serves beer and wine which can be taken into any of the several screening rooms.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

It was a cute theater and has a good selection of indy movies and documentaries. It is on the expensive side for the overall experience itself, but it is a good break from the craziness of Duval.
