We've got work to do!

The Tropic will be temporarily closing October 1st for long-overdue upgrades

We are proud to be Key West's independent cinema. To ensure that our facilities are at their best, we will be starting some much needed and long overdue renovations and upgrades on October 1st. 

Unfortunately, the nature of the renovation work means we're going to have to close our doors temporarily. Our tentative re-opening date is the end of October, though we're hoping to get everything wrapped up even sooner than that. 

We'll be posting our progress on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, so keep an eye on those accounts to stay updated. Our email subscribers will also be among the first to know any updates -- click here to subscribe to our newsletter so you don't miss out.

THANK YOU to all of our members and patrons for your continued support of the Tropic. We can't wait for you to enjoy the repaired, renovated cinema this fall!

September 25, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Directors, camerapeople, writers, actors and designers of all ages and skill levels are busy making films in just 72 hours, and we'll be screening them at the Tropic on September 25 and 26.

February 10, 2019 - 7:00 pm

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.
