If you didn’t know, the last Blockbuster store in the world is located in Bend, Oregon and now you can stay there. The store will be opening up as an Airbnb and the cost will only be $4 a night, the same charge that a movie would cost to rent it from Blockbuster back in the day.
Since 2004, store manager Sandi Harding has run the operation and in a recent interview explained, “With everybody being stuck at home and re-experiencing family time together, we thought it would be fun to enjoy some family time in a throwback ’90s environment.”
The listing went up on Airbnb and can now be rented for residents of Deschutes County. You can book a one-night reservation to stay at the Blockbuster on Sept. 18, 19, or 20. The listing only allows four guests from the same household but will have access to an unlimited movie marathon. Guests will have to abide by social distancing guidelines and Airbnb has listed all the requirements online on their website.
…cause the last BLOCKBUSTER in the world will be offering movie lovers in Bend a 90s themed sleepover for a limited time—only on airbnb. who’s down? 👀https://t.co/dd4yz1UtZP pic.twitter.com/NJEZK2wxeW
