The Flicks Community Movie Theaters are the really unique locations in Phnom Penh where you can enjoy the blockbusters, documentaries and the classics on a big wide screen, in "uber-comfy" air conditioned movie rooms, from before there were big cineplexes.

The Flicks are the ONLY legit movie theaters in town also, fully approved by the Ministry of Culture and the Cambodian Department of Cinema.

The Flicks 1 on Street 95 is the legendary little movie theater from the time there was no other big screen in town, located in an original wooden Cambodian house and features an all air conditioned bar and a leafy outside terrace. Its movie room seats 32 people.

The Flicks 2 is its little brother in the city center and also screens the must-see movie for all visitors, The Killing Fields, daily in its 16 seats movie room, located on the 2nd floor of a backpackers hotel.

Enjoy your movies for only $3.50 per day, with a drink, snacks and homemade fresh popcorn!

Stumbled on this through tripadvisor, went to flicks 2 one Friday night. $3 for a ticket, $2.50 for a very generous bowl of popcorn and $1.50 for a soda. The room is small but very cosy and comfortable. Nice size screen and brilliant sound. Was a great find in Phnom Penh.

My husband and I, along with a friend, went to Flicks Friday after work to watch the movie "Hawking. It was my husband and I's first time ever visiting Flicks. What a sweet little place!

No better way to start your Cambodia visit than to start with a visit to flicks and watch the Killing Fields to understand the pain that the nation has undergone. And considering Phnom Penh does not have much to offer in terms of sights, flicks is a nice place to go and watch some nice movies. The atmosphere is very... More

I heard about Flicks through Trip advisor and I am so glad i did. It's a great place to hideaway and escape the constant buzzing of PhnomPenh. Comfy seating, big screen, cheap drinks and food and lovely service. Definitely worth the tiny fee we paid to go. We ended up watching a great australian film

The Flicks Movie House is a fantastic gem in Phnom Penh. They show a variety of English speaking movies, both new releases and classics. Their cosy theatres make for a great atmosphere, and the owners/staff are lovely. We were happy to catch the last screening of a movie we thought we'd miss, being on the road for its whole release.... More

Okay, probably I could if they gave me free chocolate, but I loved it plenty as is. Flicks is like watching videos in your friends basement in college. Prices are cheap and get you in for a day of lounging on futons and couches snacking and watching usually not so new movies. It's a great way to spend a rainy... More

The movie selection is very limited, but I like the ideal of having themed days/nights. I went as a birthday event for a friend. It was nice to have the place all to ourselves. The place didn't get as cool as I would have liked, but for the price it was comfortable enough. I recommend this place for parties or... More

This is a lovely movie house, good size screen and image quality, comfy futons and reasonable drinks. However, I was not 'blown away' by the experience and it is ultimately just a movie theatre, hence my rating of average. The concept is not new and can be found the world over. It is cheap, but everything is in Cambodia!
