The Tropic Cinema opened its doors in Old Town Key West in 2004. We had one simple idea: to bring quality movies to people who longed for something more than Hollywood blockbusters. Our artistically diverse island community deserved to see amazing independent films, international favorites and cinematic classics — film that appealed to folks who value going beyond the usual.
Movies here start about ten minutes after the posted time. Please allow enough time to find parking, get your tickets and buy some popcorn so that you don’t miss the beginning of the film.
We do NOT have reserved seating at the Tropic. If you have purchased advance tickets, you will be ensured a seat -- but multiple seats are NOT guaranteed to be together. Please remember that arriving more than five minutes late to a featured film is extremely disruptive to the whole theater due to high attendance.
We look forward to seeing you at the Tropic!
