Enjoy A Retro 1990s Movie Night In The World’s ‘Last Blockbuster’ Airbnb

If you were born anytime before the VHS boom of the 1990s, BLOCKBUSTER might ring a bell. Sadly, the demise of the VHS tape (and subsequent move to disc-based media storage) left the brand in disarray, leading to the widespread closure of its stores. As it turns out, the final location — a small, family-style hovel in Oregon’s Deschutes County — has been turned into a film-focused escape for Airbnb users.

The location, dubbed “The Last BLOCKBUSTER” by its renters, features a striking 1990s aesthetic. From September 18th to the 20th, groups of up to four people will be able to rent the unique Airbnb for only $4 a night, courtesy of the store’s socially-distanced quarantine pods. To complement the BLOCKBUSTER’s cinematic, “at home” aesthetic, a pull-out couch, bean bags, and pillows have been supplied for guests to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy a movie night with friends. Amplify your film experience with an assortment of snacks and drinks, including a two-liter container of Pepsi, NERDS, Raisinets, popcorn, and pizza. The world’s last remaining BLOCKBUSTER needs support from the cinema-loving community during this trying time, so throw on your favorite pair of Converse and rustle up the finest denim your closet — it’s time to hop in a time machine to the 1990s.
