Overview

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.

Even if you don't make it to the theater, at least make a detour and check out the Marilyn Monroe statue in her famous pose to get some fun Key West crazy pics.

Marilyn thinks that you're missing out on all the fun if you don't come inside! Thanks for coming by and come see a movie next time. We have a beautiful lobby and great concessions to go along with our impeccable film selections.

We were in Key West for a few days and wanted to relax and watch a movie. Neat looking place inside. Reasonable prices and it serves beer and wine.
