This Week at Cine Lux

May 7, 2010
Cine Lux

Cine Lux

Cinẻ Lux is the only surviving old cinema in Phnom Penh. There is also Soriya shopping mall that has a cinema, but the Lux is truely unique. While there used to be a handful historic cinemas in the capital of Cambodia, all of them are closed now, expect for the Lux, a splendid Art Deco building from the late 1930s, that keeps showing films, occasionally even in 35 mm.

Most of them are from Thailand, sometimes from Korea, with the occasional local production thrown in. Most of the movies are horror films, the favorite genre of young Khmer movie goers. All the posters, banners etc are in Khmer, so it is often impossible to find out what the movie of the week is if you do not read the language. I am always mystified by the posters, and encourage readers to give me hints on what is on this week at the Cinẻ Lux.
