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 of the Best”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The Tropic Cinema makes going to the movies even more fun. Not only can you watch the blockbusters, but they also screen a large number of Indy films. The lobby is comfortable, as are the seats. They offer the regular at the concession stand (popcorn, sodas, candy,...); but, you can also get wine & beer! How awesome is that?

They are here not to make a profit, but to provide a service.

“Pretty Cool Cinema”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We went to a matinee showing of the documentary KOCH. The cinema is right on Duval Street close to other "must sees in Key West." If you like old things/venues then this is a must see. And, it's only one block from the courthouse (Plan to mail those postcards!). And there are usually many of the Key West chickens in the post office area.

“Great movie theater!!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Love this theater! Small and intimate. Great reasonably priced snack bar with delicious unique treats like brownies and they also serve beer and wine. Always a treat to go there!

“Wonderful Cinema”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

It's a sophisticated and well managed cinema. Do you want to have wine while watching your movie? or eat healthy snacks or just buttered popcorn? The tropic is the place to go! Always playing interesting, funny, and different movies. Can go with a group of friends, or solo.
