[ # ] Want to stay at the last Blockbuster overnight?
August 13th, 2020 under DVD

Airbnb


Remember when you used to go to Blockbuster (when they were on every corner like Starbucks is now), and you wished you could stay there all night long? Well, now you can.

The last Blockbuster in the world is on Airbnb for three nights in September. That’s right, you can stay there from the store’s closing at 9:30p until its opening at 9a. You can browse their huge library of movies, watch several of them too from the bed they added to their store, and eat lots of sugary snacks and popcorn. However, I would avoid Chopping Mall as one of your movie selections.

Sounds too good to be true? It is. Because of COVID-19, there are a lot of restrictions. For example, you have to live in Deschutes County in Oregon, where the store is located. It is just a little thank you from them to their community. Airbnb is also giving back to their community by making a donation to the Humane Society of Central Oregon.

You know, if it does well, then maybe they can open stores/Airbnbs all over the world again. I would love to spend a night in Blockbuster. I miss reading the backs of DVD cases.

Who knew in 2020, Be Kind, Rewind, would mean Blockbuster being kind to open their store overnight and rewind us to a time when the only killer virus was in a few Zombie based movies like Night of the Living Dead? The good old days.
