Video Gallery -ideas/questions

I'm building a website as a personal project and would like to make a nice video gallery...I was wondering what the best way to do this was? The videos are all on Vimeo. But in the gallery I'd like them to be thumbnails, and I'd like to add a hover property so I can display the video title when someone hovers over it. When the videos are clicked I'd like them to play in a lightbox.

What is the best way of doing this? Is it possible to do this if the videos are all hosted by Vimeo? And can I do it all with CSS or will I need javascript maybe?

Any tips would be amazing, thank you.
