Program Details

Activities & Shift

It's all about running the little movie theater (which seats 32 people in its movie room), from opening to closing, with selling tickets, drinks, snacks, make popcorn and be overall welcoming and great to our guests.

Most of them are foreigners living in Phnom Penh, missing their cinema experience from the past, when they weren't all gloomy giant cineplexes with 18 halls and machines to buy your tickets at. We are a homey (shoes off inside) movie theater that helps everybody escape the daily life in Phnom Penh for a few hours. With the best popcorn in town.


Please DO NOT APPLY if:
- if you are easily bored and don't know what to do in between movies...;
- if you are broke and homeless and just need a place to stay ("wow, free beer!")
- you prefer to party every night and sleep in until late afternoon (no fun to share a house with);
- if you enjoy using drugs (any drugs): we handle a zero tolerance for drug use (yes, any!);
- if you are allergic to cats; we foster quite a few at the house.
