A group of wild squirrels have been given a life of luxury, thanks to a furry animal lover.
Jason Lenzi has created a mini-cinema for the area’s wild squirrels, complete with handmade promotional posters, a concession stand and a fully functioning movie screen.
And the 30-year-old American did it because one day he woke up and realized that squirrels could never properly experience a movie theater in real life.
The videos show Jason, who works in video production, building the entire theater from scratch in two months at a cost of around £450 (about $560).
He used an old tablet that played his own chipmunk movie as a screen and built a miniature concession stand and filled it with goodies.
Jason added LED string lights for ambiance, popcorn bowls filled with squirrel treats, and finished off with handmade promotional movie posters.
He also installed four cameras inside to monitor squirrel activity and placed the theater in his large backyard in the woods.
Jason, from Detroit, Michigan, said, “I love to build and create things.
“I thought this would be a perfect project to challenge myself and my building skills, as well as do something fun with my time.
“Also, I REALLY wanted to know what all the squirrels would do with their own mini theater! Honestly, they loved it!
“They got to experience what a movie theater is like and I’m glad I got to show it to them.
“They ate delicious treats and snacks while watching the wonderful ‘Revenge of the Chipmunks’ movie I made for them. It was great to do it all.”
While the theater appears large enough to fit several squirrels, it may not contain the oversized squirrels that have been nicknamed “squirrelzilla,” which have left homeowners stunned after taking over their gardens in America in the last months.
The stocky, big-boned animals have been hunting for food in the gardens, and one homeowner claims a squirrel knocks on his door begging for food.
Reports of the monstrous gray squirrels appear to have increased in the US state of Maine with owners claiming that they appear to be larger than in the past.
