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.

“art deco gem on Eaton Street”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This little theater is beautifully renovated in an art deco theme. You can come in, get a glass of wine in the lobby cafe, and watch your movie, steps away from the lights of Duval street. The movie selections are varied and they present films which otherwise would be hard to find. Definitely recommended.

“great local theater”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Love that it's a non-profit theater. I like that it offers an array of genres, has a military discount and offers cocktails. It's small but that's the charm, I will definitely go back.

“What a gem!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

We dipped into Tropic Cinema to escape the afternoon sun and were pleasantly surprised to find this gem of a cinema. Even if you don't go for a movie, stick your head in the door to admire the art deco decor. This is the cleanest movie theatre I've ever been in. Wish I could have a movie house like this one in my neighborhood!
