Thats as little as 50c per day, so come take advantage of the best value movie house in town!

For all visitors to Phnom Penh we play The Killing Fields movie (1984) every day, 1:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays and 4pm from Monday to Friday. Don’t miss this must-see Cambodian movie.


Our cover charge remains only $3.50, and lasts all day. If you want to stick around and spend a whole day in front of the big screen you don’t have to pay any extra. Our cinema room theater is air-conditioned and sound-proofed, so you can be assured of a cocoon from the hustle and bustle of big city life in Cambodia.


We don’t cut corners on the food and drink either, our Khmer and Western dishes have won praise and awards over the last 3 years, and we have great cocktails and wines you can even enjoy at a discount price in Happy Hour. You can order our food online for takeaway through our partner Meal Temple
