Now showing: your style

Whether you’re into old classics or the latest blockbusters, every cinephile shares an appreciation for movie magic. Transform your digs into a movie theater when you add an Original Cinema Lightbox to your decor. The backlit LED frame allows you to continually write new messages to display while consistently showcasing your role as a movie buff.

Turn your living room into a real cinema.

Symbol swap

An old-timey marquee that fits in your living room is already pretty cool. But the fact that you can customize it as many times as you like makes it a blockbuster.

The Cinema Lightbox enables you to post new attractions or re-release old favorite quips in an eye-catching, whimsical sign.

Go watch The Princess Bride if you haven’t seen it... or even if you have.

Sign Message 2: the Sequel

Since you’re not stuck with just one thing on your Cinema Lightbox, feel free to remix your messages. Post coming attractions, highlight your favorite quotes, or just leave a reminder. The script can be rewritten as often as you want.

The Cinema Lightbox includes one hundred swappable transparent tiles with letters, numbers, and common symbols. The set includes the entire alphabet (with duplicates for more popular letters), numerals from 0 to 9, and five common symbols.

100 letters & numbers included

The writing’s on the wall

At 2.5" deep, the Cinema Lightbox works wonderfully as an accent piece on a side table. Just set it in place, plug the included USB cable into your wall adapter (not included), and enjoy the lighted letters. But with integrated hanging brackets, the battery-powered lightweight frame is also wall-mountable, just like a real movie marquee!

Post up your appreciation for WALL-E, The Wolf of Wall Street, or The Great Wall.

Supplemental symbols ☺

Sometimes, there aren’t enough letters. And sometimes, letters just aren’t enough. That’s why emojis are so popular, and also why you can optionally purchase an additional 100 letters, numbers, and symbols!

The add-on pack includes more letters and numbers to supplement the included set as well as 51 unique pictographs that aren’t necessarily found in your emoji keyboard, including Batman’s cowl, a hot cup of coffee, and a baby stroller.
