We are so happy to team up with @airbnb to bring a few lucky local residents a chance to spend the night in the last blockbuster! With 22,500 movies to choose from I don’t even know where I’d start! • Starting August 17 at 1 p.m. PST on Airbnb, Deschutes County residents can call dibs on (aka book) a totally rad, yet intimate slumber party at the world's last BLOCKBUSTER store by requesting to book one of the three individual, one-night reservations that will take place on September 18, 19 and 20. While a movie rental will cost you $3.99, for just a penny more you can book one of these stays for $4 (plus taxes and fees) for an unlimited movie marathon. For more information visit the link in our bio and we are still working on the insane amount of online support we’ve experienced. If you’re still waiting on your package please know we are working very hard with the amazing work from our staff, families and local Volunteers. 💙💛

The last Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon is now taking reservations for September, but only for three nights. The legendary movie store will be available September 18th, 19th and 20th. The only catch is that you must be a resident of Bend, Oregon to book it. 

The cost to stay with three friends in the legendary movie spot is only $4 per night! Rich and famous won’t give you any advantage unless you’re on the list of local residents. Celebrities that we’ve found that can book the location are Rainn Wilson of The Office, Brittany Howard of the Alabama Shakes, legendary champion surfer Ferry Lopez, Matthew Fox from Lost, and Drew Bledsoe of the New England Patriots. These celebrities hold addresses in the local zip code and  are the few that can book a nights stay. 

The location’s manager Sandi Harding has turned the movie store into the ultimate suite. Remember being a kid on a Friday night in early 2000 and late 90s? Children these days will never understand the ultimate satisfaction of snagging the last new release off the shelf. If you’re able to hold a spot or are selected to stay the night, the Airbnb will include a fold-out style sofa, VHS player, snacks, a beanbag chair, and dinner for a blast to the 90s past.  If you’re unable to book one of the three nights at Blockbuster, the store will be open for daily visits for a walk down memory lane. Don’t forget how to use the tracking button if you choose to pop in your favorite VHS. 

If you would like to own a piece of the nostalgic company; DVD’s, CD’s, and VHS’ can be purchased with Blockbuster sleeves on blockbuster.com/closingstores.
