“Back to School” Screening Tonight at the Tropic!



Looking for something to do tonight in Key West? How about catching a one night only screening of the 80′s classic comedy “Back to School” starring Rodney Dangerfield? With supporting acts like Robert Downey Jr., Burt Young, and even a cameo by Kurt Vonnegut, this all star cast does a fantastic job of telling the story of a well-meaning business man who enrolls in college to encourage his young son.

As usual, this cheeky comedy is only playing for one night in one place: the Tropic Cinema theatre at 416 Eaton St., downtown Key West! Screening starts at 7:00pm; Get there early for good seats and maybe an extra slice of frozen key lime pie.
