What is this Cardboard Box Office?

Welcome to Cardboard Box Office – our homemade creations of some of your favorite scenes from film and TV built from some of our favorite domestic junk.

The project began after finding that we had accumulated both a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country) and a baby (due to giving birth). With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun.

The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity. Enjoy!

  1. Beautiful scene’s, very creative. We, the Dutch family, are very proud of you!
    Keep your imagination burning (but not the cardboard!!!).
    Big hugs, Berno

  2. These are a screech! Can you do something from the chase scene in Steve McQueen’s ‘Bullit?’ That would be EPIC!!!

  3. A friend told me I should come visit and I am so glad I did! I love cardboard and I have three kids but we’ve never done something as cool as this. Bravo! Thank you for making me smile today!

  4. Just great! I love to see parents that think outside of the box – héhé get it, out of the box…-
    There is a page on the internet of a couple that to every day somethings with dino’s just to suprise there kids. He’s maybe a bit to young for it, but maybe something for the future?
    Keep up the good work, you are making a great start for your son. Imagination is the most important thing that a kid can have, and need to have. And of course, think on the great moments in the future when he comes home with his girlfriend and you show these picture and he’s gone be so shy about it. Those moments are gone be wort gold!
