Hemakcheat Cinema

Hemakcheat Cinema was built during 1950s in Sangkum Reatr Niyum Era( No clear document wrote in which year). This Cinema used to own by one of the well-known Cambodian filmmaker, Ly Bun Yim. According to the documentary film “Golden Slumbers” by Chou Davy, Hemakcheat had about a thousand seats including the seats on the balcony. During Khmer Rouge regime it was abandoned . Since 1979 until nowadays, it has housed for many low income people who moved into the building for settlement. Today, we can see there are piles of rubbishes inside and outside the building. Therefore, there is stronger smells mingled with foulest odors possible. On the ground floor now is used for a small private motorbike parking lot. Nowadays we can recognize the theatre by its exterior feature, because we can see the name of theatre written that Hemakcheat in Khmer and Chinese name below also. Hemak means gold, and cheat means sin.

Along Street 130 were some of the biggest and best-known cinemas in Phnom Penh during the 1960s, the ” Golden Age of Cambodian Cinema “. One of Those well-known cinemas, the Hemakcheat, was one of the most outstanding cinemas during that period. The Cinema was built in the 1960s and has a box-shaped front. Film director Ly Bun Yim, the former owner of the cinema, recalls: ” Bun Sun, the former owner, had planned to have a restaurant on the ground floor and the cinema on top of that, but his plan did not work out.” presently, the people living in the buiding use the  restaurant space as a parking lot. “below the cinema logo, there was a huge space for hilm posters of the films that we were showing,” Ly Bun Yim adds. Today, this place is a slum with hundreds of inhabitants who have taken informal residence there.
