Building Lego Palace Cinema 10232

Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Instagram will know I'm a huge Lego fan and have been enjoying building a few kits over the last year or so. We purchased the Lego Palace Cinema recently and below you'll find how the build went.

The fun thing with Lego is there's always something intriguing about the build. As you're piecing something together you're guessing what it is. You look at it wondering what on earth it could be, until you place one more piece and all of a sudden it dawns on you what it is. This happened to me with this...

When I added those front grills I realised it was a car.

After building the car we moved onto the base of the Cinema. I love Lego for the little touches, and the base is always fun to do. They don't just leave it as the red blocks, no, they need to be covered. And what else could you cover them with but a Star Walk right outside the Cinema of course!

Once the base was covered it was time to start building the Cinema itself.  The walls were fairly easy and I loved the posters.

Not only do Lego consider the building but they add cute touches to the inside too. In the Cinema you'll find a sweet counter, a drinks cabinet, and a popcorn machine. The doors into the Cinema are large swing doors which open and close and there are large windows which you can look through to see inside.







Moving on to the second level I squealed with joy when we started putting together the seating for the Cinema.



Putting them in was fun, there are two rows of seats and it actually started to look like a Cinema.




What Cinema is complete without a projector...




And a screen!




Of course the Cinema also needs customers and staff...



The second floor is placed on top...


The roof is just as intricate as the rest of the build, with tiny pieces fitting together to make decoration on the roof. 






We added the roof to the building and next we had to build the sign. I loved how this went together, it's not just letters but pieces of Lego placed in just the right way to form the letters. It's so cool!







When the Palace Cinema was finished it had to take pride of place right next to our Tower Bridge.



Do you have a favourite Lego build?

  1. I loved playing and building with lego though none of it was as elaborate as these! Bet it's sad to break them up when you need the floor space/table back!

    1. Oh Hayley, I LOVE lego. I wonder, do you have the sets and follow instructions or do you just build random things? We always have a set, they're great. I can almost guarantee your boys' love of Lego will increase with age!

  4. Oh wow I wouldn't even know where to start with all those pieces! Can't believe how intricate it is. Will you keep it built permanently? Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst xx

    1. Hehe it's definitely complicated Sarah. No we never keep them built, the fun of Lego is in the building we don't want no Kragle* here! ;)

  5. Hi Morgan, I have never had a go at building something so intricate. Lego has come along way since I last played with it and I can see why enjoy doing it. I'm actually wondering if it may make a good Christmas present for my Dad. He likes things like that.

  7. Lego is so clever, I wish my boys were into it. But if man just can't do it, it hurts his fingers too much and he doesn't have the strength! I love the cinema seats. #POCOLO

    1. Aw that's such a shame hun. Perhaps when he's a little older he'll like it. The cinema seats were my favourite too! ;)

  8. Amazing. You are getting my Lego juices going with all your handiwork Morgan. I had lots of Lego as a little girl which is still in the 'roof'. My daughter has not been sucked into Lego but you are making want to go and get some grown up lego! Thank you for hosting #PoCoLo and for the showcase feature
