Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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: Food available for purchase, Wheelchair access

“Not your average movie theater”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Operated by volunteers, showing all types of films, and in a modern clean facility. This place is another of the genuinely nice things about Key West and reflects the vibrancy and volunteerism of the people more permanently living in the community.

“Fantastic Cinema Experience”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

I absolutely love this place. From the friendly staff to the amazing film (and snack!) selection to the cleanliness of the theaters, this is one of my favorite places to go on the island. I'm proud to support such a great place.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We came here since it was rated quite well on trip adviser but don't know why it's rated so high. Yes it's an older style cinema with a couple of cool looking statues out front but it looks the same as many other older cinemas. Perhaps if you've never seen one before but since the average tourist is at least 50 plus years old I imagine most people have seen one before.

What a terrific place to see a movie! Friendly staff, clean theaters, and a very intimate feel. Makes me never want to go back to a multi-plex!
