Luna Leederville is creating an immersive experience for director Wes Anderson’s latest comedy by turning the cinema into the film’s hotel, complete with projected imagery on the Oxford Street facade each night by Roly Skender.

Perth-based stylist Emma Bergmeier-Varian will be responsible for re-creating the hotel lobby, a gallery space and lobby bar that will serve themed cocktails and sweet treats.

Filmgoers might even spot one of the movie’s colourful characters brought to life.

The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune against the backdrop of a dramatically changing continent.

The opening festivities run from April 10 to 12. Tickets at lunapalace.com.au
