The Flicks is closing within 5 months

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The Flicks is closing within 5 months

Post by frizzie77 » Sat Dec 14, 2019 12:15 am

Ramon Stoppelenburg finally will throw in the towel. Was a long time coming, I'm afraid.

On the website (http://www.theflicks.asia/) it says: THE FLICKS CLOSES PERMANENTLY ON MAY 1, 2020.

Still, it's the end of an era, with him running it for - what, more than 10 years!
At one point I think The Flicks had 3 venues (incl. 1 at The Empire on St. 130).

So the personalized body rub down service for frustrated foreigners took off or not?

Hey, i thought deep and meaningful Hollywood would be a sure fire winner.
Obviously not enough shallow-heads in Phnom Penh these days.
Go to a foreign land. Make it one of the most culturally interesting and diverse little cities in the world. Entertain yourself with wild nights out watching Brad Pitt movies.

The backpackers still flock around the non-stop reruns of Friends on the communal TV. Maybe The Flicks crowd will move over there now.

I wonder how many nudists work there, or if he was the only one?

Fake NGO with a home cinema illegally playing downloaded movies. The investors are going to be lining up.
