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

Real popcorn and good snacks available. We found it convenient to walk to from Duval St and perfect for a rainy day activity.

This is the classiest movie theatre I've ever been in. My wife went to three movies while I was at the Literary Festival... while I joined her for a fourth. All offerings were current first run movies.... Brooks, Wolf, Philomena and Her.

It's Art Deco exterior is continued inside. Where else can you get champagne with your popcorn? Each of the auditoriums is clean and designed for a perfectly enjoyable experience as you watch your movie.

It's a non-profit that's run by volunteers. And Judy Bloom's parents are honored in the lobby.

BTW, I'd be surprised if anyone ever talks during the movie or throws their trash on the floor.

First, you are greeted nicely as soon as you enter. Then on to the snack bar, clean, efficient, gourmet!!! Popcorn flavors, everything from ranch to bbq, cajun, and cheddar. HOLD on the best part, they fill your bag half way then butter in, then fill the bag again and more butter!!!!! Barbara Streisand would LOVE! Theaters are small but clean and comfortable. Great movie selection both weeks!

This is a fantastic place to watch a movie. Stadium seating, food and drinks for purchase. Yes, I said drinks, adult drinks. They tend to play older movies and independent films. Go if you get a chance!

I always love going to the TROPIC! I've seen five movies there in the past month - and have loved every one of them.
