Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment had the fictional Grand Budapest Hotel built out of legos to celebrate the release of the Wes Anderson film of the same name on DVD and Blu-ray.

Fox worked with nine professional model builders to make the replica, which was put on display at The Grove this weekend. Angelenos will get another chance to see the lego hotel, which is seven-feet tall, six-and-a-half feet wide and built from more than 50,000 certified Lego bricks, as part of the A+D Architecture and Design Museum’s size and scale exhibit “Come In! S, M, L, XLa” from June 19 to August 31.

See a time-lapse video of the hotel being built over 575 hours below starring the film’s Tony Revolori (Zero, the lobby boy) below:
