The only Blockbuster left in the world is in Bend, OR. The store still rents movies and video games, and it still sells candy and other movie night necessities—just like the Blockbusters you knew and loved in the '90s.
Blockbuster listed a one night's stay on Airbnb for anyone in Deschutes County who wants to feel the intense nostalgia of the '90s. For just $4 and a quick finger, you can book a sleepover movie night at Blockbuster, where you'll be provided with a pull-out couch, bean bags, pillows, and all the "new releases" from the '90s, as well as pizza, NERDS, Raisinets, and buttered popcorn.
You'll also be provided with a pack of face coverings, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizer. Everything will be cleaned in accordance with Airbnb's Enhanced Cleaning Protocol based on recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
For those who don't live in Bend and need some movie recommendations, you can call the store to talk to a real-life human who will offer ideas based on your preferences—you know, if Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, or Amazon Prime Video aren't your thing.
"If you aren't among the few to snag these bookings or visit - because you're somewhere else in the world - but in need of a fresh movie suggestion, we have you covered," the Airbnb listing reads. "Call the store to take advantage of our Callgorithm. Tell us what you like and don't like, and a real human will give you tailored recommendations. You can also snag some BLOCKBUSTER swag to further support our staff and community during this challenging time at our online shop."
On 8/17 at 1 p.m. PT, locals can book one of three one-night stays that'll take place on September 18th, 19th, and 20th for up to four people—and for only $4 a night. You'll just need to have a quick clicking finger, because it'll likely sell out quickly.
