Phnom Penh Cultural Center (Chenla Theatre)

Phnom Penh Cultural Center (known as Chenla theatre) belongs to the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts. It is used for performances, festivals and exhibitions by both governmental institutions and NGOs. 

Chenla theater was built in the mid of 1960, and was abandoned during the Pol Pot war period 1975–1979. After being liberated from the Khmer Rouge regime in 1979, it was renamed as "Phnom Penh Theater". The theater has been renovated into a modern international standard facility, and was given a new name "Phnom Penh Cultural Center".
