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

The Tropic is a great find in Key West. From the art deco sign outside to the friendly staff serving surprisingly excellent snacks to the cool movies shown here, going to the Tropic is a great experience.

Great small theater in old town Key West. They regularly have foreign films and an occasional independent film or documentary. They serve beer and wine and snacks you would never find at a regular theater. The atmosphere is very nice. The place is ran by true theater buffs, who work as volunteers and really want to be there! Amazing little gem of a theater, every town should have a place like this.

The Tropic Cinema has been rated the top independent movie house in Florida by Florida Magazine for several years. There are 4 theaters which seat from approx. 50 persons to 180.
The offerings are varied, challenging and most always entertaining. The concessions serves a
good wine and beer selection, which they offer by the glass or bottle. A delicious selection of
dark, imported chocolates. Hot popcorn, which they happily add melted butter half way up the bag if you really, really love butter. A wonderful experience, 1/2 block off Duval on Eaton St. near the main Post Office.

We refuse to go to the cinema in New Town. It's nasty, the management is immature and rude, and the floor is sticky.
