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.

This movie theater is like walking back in time. This is the only theater we go to. We go weekly and are memebers.

“Small Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Was a delight to be in this movie theatre. Small and intimate but with a big screen. Like you are in your own screening room (if you were rich enough).

A varied programme, intimate theaters and knowledgeable staff help to make this cinema a very good experience for those who like a short break from the bars, beaches and restaurants.

“Great Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Visited Key West for 5th consecutive year, and this is the first time I ever saw a movie on the Island. Passed by this place every year, and just never felt the inclination to see a movie. Pleasantly surprised by the decor and friendliness of staff. Nice size theatre screen and comfortable seats. I will definitely visit again next year.

quirky theatre, offbeat movies, marilyn monroe statue. I kind of never want to go to another movie theatre.
