Some pretty serious "Hobbit" fans (dressed up in their best dwarf attire, of course) gave a tour of the humble hobbit's home that they recreated outside a movie theater in Redlands.

Bryan Stifle of Redlands and Chris Doughty of Yucaipa spent months constructing the hobbit's house just like the titular character Bilbo Baggins. It has a round door, and it's built into a "hill" of green astroturf. On Wednesday, they hauled the house out to the Krikorian movie theater in Redlands, according to the San Bernardino Daily Sun.

Inside the hobbit house, they pitched a tent so they could camp out and wait for the next installation of a franchise that they're pretty obsessed with.

"We have watched the original trilogy upwards to 15 times a year," Stifle told the Sun.
