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!

Lilly, Leon, & Orson

  14. First heard about your site on Graham Norton on BBCA, and really enjoyed following up to look at the site myself. Really great work!

    I only have one request – being that I’m from and currently live in San Diego – I think there should be a Top Gun in the future! Maverick and all…

    Other than that, I look forward to seeing more of you guys on here!

  15. Just saw your site on a recorded episode of Graham Norton on BBCA. This is the funniest site I’ve seen in a looooong time. These are amazing pictures to pass down to future generations.

    Soooooo, how about some Harry Potter or Hobbit or Transformers??? Those would be hilarious!!!
