Roll Out the Red Carpet!

The Tropic will be reopening on October 26

We are thrilled to announce that the Tropic Cinema will be re-opening for business on Friday, October 26! As you've seen on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and in the pages of the Citizen, we've been hard at work all month, and you're going to love the results.

The updates include:

  • An overdue deep clean of the entire building
  • New carpet
  • New lighting
  • New paint colors
  • New tile in both the men's and women's restroom
  • An additional toilet in the women's restroom

We can't wait for you to see our new look -- and we're just as excited to be debuting some highly anticipated movies when we re-open, including "A Star is Born." We've still got plenty to finish up, but we are already looking forward to welcoming you back!

Our 2019 slate of Southern Circuit films kicks off with "93Queen," an inside look at at a group of tenacious Hasidic women who are taking on the patriarchy by creating the first all-female volunteer ambulance corps in New York City.

March 24, 2019 - 7:00 pm

Our 2019 slate of Southern Circuit films continues with "United Skates," a deep dive into the vibrant and celebratory world of African American roller skating. Across the country, skaters fight to preserve a tradition that reaches deep into their family history; this film documents a small but monumental piece of American culture at risk of disappearing.

April 28, 2019 - 7:00 pm

Our 2019 slate of Southern Circuit films concludes with "Breaking the Bee," a look at the ups and downs of four Indian-American students, ages seven to 14, as they compete to realize their dream of winning the Scripps National Spelling Bee—and cement their place in a two-decade dynasty.
