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.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access, Food available for purchase

They don't call this the Southernmost Hollywood Theater, but they could. From Seward Johnson's Marilyn outfront to the Hurrell portraits inside, you can tell the folks who designed and run this theater really love movies. The refreshments are a cut above multiplex fare and so is audience behavior. I have never heard a cellphone go off or noisy conversation during the main feature. I can think of no more uniquely conch way to spend a rainy afternoon in Key West.

The theatre is small, but it is perfect. Volunteers work the theatre, which is supported by the patrons. Saw Quartet. You can get popcorn and soda, wine or beer. Great place. Wish we had one of these in Charlotte.

Best old fashioned popcorn I can remember and a well stocked wine and beer list. Seating was the comfortable and it was immaculate.

Where else can you have a glass of wine while watching a movie? Feels like old Hollywood. Multiplex but feels intimate. Very fun place to visit.

Run by smart people, this theater has first run films not shown at your average multiplex. Foreign and indie films fresh from the festival circuit.
