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.

“Love the Tropic!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Every year we go to Key West right before the Academy Awards. The Tropic Cinema is always playing the movies that are up for awards. I find myself checking their website about a month in advance to see what will be playing while we are there. This year it was Silver Linings Playbook with Bradley Cooper. We look forward to this movie theater because it is so unique and everyone working/volunteering there is so pleasant. I love that you can have a glass of wine or beer, key lime pie, brownies or ice cream at the movies. It is truly a fun experience.

“Nice theatre”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

This is a quaint, little multiplex, that has history and a family vibe to it. The theatre we were in likely had a capacity of 80 or so. We saw Life of Pi in 3D and it was a different form of 3D glasses that was excellent to watch. Real butter on the popcorn which is a plus. Highly recommend this theatre. Remember to arrive early a ,s the theatres are small to avoid disappointment!

“Great Movies and I don't care what you see”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Bought our ticket, went to the concession stand for popcorn and a bottle of Wine--Yes, you heard right, a bottle of wine $28. We brought our own plastic wine glasses. What a treat. The Tropic shows movies for couples and all are great. They leave the blood and other body parts to other theaters so you can just decide you want to see a movie and go there. What more can you ask for?

I like EVERyTHING about this place, but mostly the fact that it is not necessarily kid-friendly. The features are adult-oriented, auditoriums small, and there are no sticky floors, trash all over the place and no one kicking o the back of my seat. It's an amazing escape
