For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Movie Theater.

Movie theaters are entertainment buildings in Tropico 3 and Tropico 4. Along with entertaining citizens, movie theaters can be used as tools of propaganda or to push a factional agenda, depending on the choice of films.

Tourists of every type enjoy going to the movies, no matter what's playing, so it's a good idea to situate one close to hotels and other such places.

No more than 5 Theaters may be built on one island.
