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!

“Cozy,funky,artsy place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

A very nice and tiny movie house with comfy couches and beds and food. Staff are extremely friendly. And the decoration inside is corky and hilarious. Definitely a must go place in Phnom Penh if you are staying for longer. A nice change from the historic sites and temples. Very cheap - $3.5 for a whole day's movies.

“Watched the Game of Thrones S3 finale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Even while we were getting away from it all, a tiny guilty part of me really wanted to know what was happening in the season finale of Game of Thrones - Flicks was showing it! When the screening sold out they scheduled another for later that evening, which was good of them. Nice comfy seats, aircon, cold beers (in beer holders, nice touch) and popcorn.

“Awesome movie experience in Phnom Penh!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had to stay in Phnom Penh a few extra days because of visa problems and were dying to see a movie one night when we heard about The Flicks. It's a community movie house that's tucked away upstairs, just outside the city bustle. It's a community movie house so they don't charge for the movies themselves, just the cost of furniture and A/C, which means you pay $3.50 per person and can hang out as long as you want. Food and beer are reasonable (not movie theatre prices like in America!) and the seats are super comfy (long mattresses so you can sprawl out.)

If you're only in PP for a short time, I wouldn't put it at the top of the list, but if you're hanging for a few days and/or want to see a movie, this is the place to do it!

“Relax in comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

You pay for the air conditioning not the movie, your ticket is good for every movie shown that day. What better value for your dollar than this place it has a bar and also you can get food. But there are seats if you want to but the best is the full lying pillows on the floor to lay back and enjoy in comfort great way to spend and afternoon and evening.

“The Best Movie house in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Where would you find a movie place that you can buy cocktails, beers and burgers, T-shirts, art work? THE FLICKS!
And the coolest place to gather a group of friends to watch sometimes the most far out movies, sometimes classic and sometimes just the new releases.
Something for every folks. Don't miss it!
