Welcome to the Tropic!

What to know about the southernmost independent cinema.

Are you joining us for the first time? We’re excited to have you visit us and we want you to have a great experience. Please know that we only show about ten minutes of previews before our films, so don't forget to allow enough time to find parking, get your tickets and buy some popcorn without missing the beginning of the film.

Please arrive early! 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!

Presented by the Key West Film Festival - In addition to illuminating a little-known chapter of American history, "The Lavender Scare" is a timely reminder of the value of vigilance and social action when civil liberties are under attack.

June 11, 2019 - 7:00 pm

From legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese comes "Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story"—a "film experience" that blurs truth, myth and performance. Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream, the film captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975 as well as Dylan's joyous music.
