Wayne R. Kruer

In Memoriam

Tropic Cinema mourns the loss of its close friend and founding director, Wayne R. Kruer, who died in Key West last week. Wayne was a founding member of the Key West Film Society and chaired our board of directors for three years starting in 2007. He served as the not-for-profit’s counsel for more than a decade. A fluent Spanish speaker, Wayne championed Spanish language and Latin films at the cinema.
