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!

“nice place for young travelers to watch a movie”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

About the size of movie room in a McMansion, Flicks is the kind of place that a young traveler, gap year student, or maybe a foreign NGO employee might want to see an independent or older film.

I had a couple of hours to kill before my flight home, so I escaped the heat to watch a B listed movie. There's soda and beer, popcorn and snacks, and even a limited menu available for purchase.

It cost $3.50 for the movie, I think, and that might have been good for the whole day.

Anyway, if you've got limited time in Phnom Penh, there's no need to visit. But if you're here longer, than it would make a nice afternoon or evening out.

This is a really nice place to relax and get away from the buzzy street life. Nice and comfy seating, big screen and they sell drinks and snacks in the lobby.

“Fantastic little gem.”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

Stumbled on this through tripadvisor, went to flicks 2 one Friday night. $3 for a ticket, $2.50 for a very generous bowl of popcorn and $1.50 for a soda. The room is small but very cosy and comfortable. Nice size screen and brilliant sound. Was a great find in Phnom Penh.
