Overview

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!

Was there for a 4pm show ‘The shape of water’. Venue is really cozy with comfy bench and a small pillow to hug. It was pretty hot out there then we just wanted to chill inside the theatre with cold ciders. Wonderful show!
