Owner description: The Flicks Community Movie Theater is the legendary and most unique location in Phnom Penh where you can enjoy the latest films, festival winners, documentaries and kids flicks on a big wide screen, in an "uber-comfy" air conditioned movie room, from before there were big cineplexes. The Flicks is the little movie theater from the time when 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. Enjoy your movies for only $3.50 per day, with a drink, snacks and homemade fresh popcorn available at the bars! Welcome home!

Easy to get too,,along street 310 and down street 95 and its on the right..there is a sign so you won't miss it.
The films and times you can get on the net,just walk in through the gate and up the stairs right in front of you..
It's all wood and you tend to bounce abit,well I did,..
Take of your shoes and buy your ticket,order your sweets pop corn beer juice,what ever and enter the viewing room.
There is beds on the floor,chairs with cushions and a massive wall screen about 20 feet in front of you..
It was class,drank a few beers and totally relaxing atmosphere..
It's different and I loved it.try it when your here,you will not be disappointed ..an experience ..

I love The Flicks Movie House and would highly recommend it. The owner, Ramon, is more than hospitable, and the volunteer staff are also happy to help with anything. They show an excellent mix of films, such as old classics, Cambodia-related material, popular television series, and new blockbusters, all for only $3.50 for the whole day. It's a great place for backpackers as well as Phnom Penh expats. The place is comfortable, has delicious food and drinks, and Ramon is constantly running around to make it even better... new cushions and carpet, aircon everywhere, etc. You can tell that he really cares about the place and the guests' enjoyment and satisfaction. Good job Flicks!

Before I set off backpacking for a year I used to go to the cinema a lot. So really miss it. This place really scratched my itch. We could only go one particular night but that didnt matter because they have great films every day of the week. Whoever picks the films has great taste.

When we arrived (shoes off on arrival just makes it even more comfortable) a party had rented a showing and were watching Lost Boys and seemed like they were having an awesome time. I really wish we got to do that.

Snacks are good. Drinks are good. Staff are friendly. I wish I worked here.

I loved the myriad of genres Ramone was playing at the Flicks. One night it was a documentary followed by a drama and ended with a romance. Also, how great it $3.50 for one ticket that allows you to see 3 movies if you go to the early show! It was very hot in Phnom Penh when I visited so the aircon was an excellent escape, and plus Ramone is a really fun guy to talk to. I came back a couple of times.
