Stephen's Ulitmate Lego Working Movie Theater (with laptop): The Screen Stadium
About this creation
Introducing the craftiest Lego creation I have ever made: a real, working movie theater! Besides the great construction of the theater itself, the magic lies in my laptop, which thankfully has a DVD drive. Can you guess yet? The theater screen is my laptop itself!! It is hidden inside the movie theater, and none of it can be seen except the top and the electrical plug sockets and heat of which I built spaces for. This awesome creation contains about 3,000 pieces, weighs 3 lbs. (the laptop adds 4 more), and took about 2 hours to build over a period of 5 days. What a theater, huh?! You could fall asleep even during the film in those velvet seats, couldn’t you? The two stairways lead up to the highest seating at a height of a Lego three-story building. The theater can seat 80 people at the maximum.

   This is the Screen Stadium with the roof on it. The building is shaped weirdly, but I was low on bricks when I built this.

   Here you can see the insides more clearly. At the entrance there is the ticket booths, the popcorn & drink stands, and the entrance to the seats. I modeled the seating after an IMAX theater in my hometown in the USA.

At the bottom you can see the ushers, who guide you to your seats via the two stairways which lead up to the highest seating at a height of a Lego three-story building. The theater can seat 80 people at the maximum.

That's a great idea and got me thinking you could do a similar thing on a house size scale using a small smartphone or ipod to represent a flat screen tv.

I could not possibly do such work(especially since my macintosh isn't a laptop). Simply amazing. How were you able to build it in ten hours? I added. It is ten hours of building.

Overall a very good build and very creative idea to integrate the laptop. Color scheme could use some work, but as you said, you were low on bricks. A litte more interior detail might be nice and maybe some type of flagstone floor in it or something like that. Using tiles out front to define a sidewalk and parking area might also add to the realism. Very cool though and again, I love the use of the laptop!
