Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The Flicks Community Movie Houses 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 houses 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 movie house 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 30 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 20 seats movie room. The Flicks 3 is the latest 30-seats venue on Street 258, which also features a restaurant and guesthouse. Enjoy your movies for only $3.50 Per day, with a drink, snacks and homemade fresh popcorn!

“Awesome place to watch a movie (& play with cats).”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

The flicks is the best place to watch movies in phnom penh, always a friendly welcome.

Really comfortable (I always lie on the mats - kinda like watching a movie in bed!)
Can order dinner from muma's to eat during the movie, and awesome popcorn too - all great value.

The cats are an important part of the visit. Piri-piri is possibly the largest cat in phnom penh, twinkle the friendliest.

A great place to watch movies with friends, on a date or even alone - a really amazing place for expats & backpackers alike. (I've been visiting regularly for the 2 years i've lived in p.p)

“cool, low key expat hang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I just moved to Phnom Penh and didn't know anybody. The Flicks served a dual purpose for me of keeping me current on the most recent season of Game of Thrones and being a cool, low key place to meet other expats and start seeing familiar faces every week. Plus, where else do you get to lounge and watch the most recent films from the states?

I LOVE The Flicks!

“Movie Lover's (aircon) Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Walking in to The Flicks is definitely my favorite way to escape the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. The theater is intimate, the cushions and chairs are comfortable, the beer is cold, and the popcorn is delicious. And to top it off, the owner has a keen eye for selecting current and classic movies that appeal to all tastes. I will miss this place!

“Flicks a excellent movie experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

I really like going to cinema to see the latest releases and some classics on the big screen and I have been to many of the commercial chains both at home and in Cambodia as well as some specialist cinema but I had never been to community movie house.

The flicks is excellent it is the prefect combination of big screen theater and home movie experience. I have been many times and ever time something has changed (for the better i.e. the heavy red curtains, the air conditioning, chips (french fires) etc. The staff (volunteers) and Rammon who runs the movie house are also friendly and relaxed. Other positives fantastic value air conditioning, great seat (pillow on the floor) and good supply of drink/food. Last but not least is that you can arrange private screening of your personal favorites for the cost of a family cinema tickets in Ireland/UK...... the Flicks is awesome movie experience

“Movie magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

This is a community, entertainment hub and unique Phnom Penh experience where the staff always make you feel welcome. They've rolled out the red carpet and the bar / lounge is a great place for a pre or post movie drink with plenty of art and quirky posters on the walls, air con and music. The cinema itself is comfortable with mattresses and lounge chair options, and they have a good delivery menu from nearby restaurants so you enjoy a meal during the movie. The schedule covers everything from Hollywood blockbusters, indie, docs and classics as well as TV series marathons or week-to-week screenings. Best of all, you need only pay $3.50 admission PER day (as opposed to per movie.) This Flicks is one of my favourite places to hang with friends for an afternoon and / or night.
