Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The Flicks Community Movie Theaters are the most 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 Big 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 available at the bars! Welcome home!

Comfortable lounges and seats with drink service, you'd expect to spend a fortune for this kind of experience but it was so cheap! Good movie selection featuring new releases and local cultural pieces. Nice to go and relax after a big day of sightseeing.

A film lovers dream. Very comfortable, great staff, fair prices. I couldn't ask for a better movie-going experience.

We went to Flicks 2 to watch a movie a couple of days ago. It cost USD 3.50 per person to watch as many movies as you want for the whole day. It is really cheap if you are watching more than 1 movie as each movie costs USD 3 in the cinema. The first 2 rows of the cinemas are on mattresses and you are able to lie down and enjoy the film. It looks really comfortable, but unfortunately we did not manage to get one of those. We sat on the third row and the seats are not that comfortable. It is like a wooden sofa with 1 cushion so you can choose to either put it to you back, your bottom, or just to hug it.

Food there was really good but on the expensive side. It cost about USD 2.50 for a small handmade beef burger (about 2 inches in diameter). You can add fries to the burger for USD 2. Like any other cinemas, you are not allowed to bring your own food and drinks into the theatre.

If you have more than a couple days in Phnom Penh you definitely need to check out this place! I planned to go for the 1400 movie on Sunday, but stayed for the 1600 one, then returned after dinner for the 2000 one! Awesome couches/love seats and futons (thin mattresses/pads) to chill out on while watching the movie. Even popcorn (though it tasted like microwave rather than the movie theater kind). Only $3.50 per day no matter how many movies you watch...definitely a great deal! Oh and my experience was at Flicks 2, though I'd love to check out Flicks 1 at some point. Highly recommend this place!

As a movie lover, I was very excited to find the Flicks. We went on a Saturday afternoon and had the super comfy room to ourselves. Lying on giant pillow/mattresses on the floor with the air conditioner blasting in cold air, drinking cold beers and eating popcorn, my girlfriend and I felt we had hit the jackpot.

The choice in movies is a little peculiar - we are waiting till something we want to see is on so we can go again.

Ticket was $3.50 - but i think this entitles you to the whole day. Would be great for little kids too.

It might take a little finding - street 95 is a odd place for it to be - but i think a lot of tuk-tuk drivers know it.

I think we will be hiding out here a lot.
