Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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!

If you want a chilled out night then definately give this place a try. The cinema is small only had 6 people in the screen and had comfy seating to watch the film. Definately try their British chips, they were amazing!

“Most comfortable movie experience ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Very cheap, and the cinema (we went to Flicks 2) was fitted out with very comfy lie-down beds. They let you take in alcohol with you, which was also a plus. Great movie too, excellent sound and video quality.

Love The Flicks... the movies are often great and it makes a welcome contrast from the big commercial cinemas at the malls.

“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great place to see a film in Phnom Penh.

They show new releases, docos and classic film. Always impressed by the films they pull out for each week.

Atmosphere is fantastic, very laid back and friendly.

Highly recommended to movie goers of all ages and backgrounds.

“Brilliant”

Great idea and really well done. Friendly welcoming staff, good online reservation system and website. And even a decent Bloody Mary. A fab option which makes a change from standard tourist evenings out.
