Did you know that there is one Blockbuster left, and it is in Bend, Oregon? Well, now you do, 'cause I just told you. Also, today they cryptically tweeted "just checking in. 👋"
Turns out it's because Airbnb is letting you rent it out and have a sleepover in it.
Yes. You can literally stay overnight at Blockbuster in Bend, Oregon.
FOR FOUR DOLLARS!!!!!
There's no bed, only a couch and an air mattress.
But the couch pulls out and has this fun bedding on it, which is cool I guess.
And the entire living room setup is in the middle of the store.
The listing says this about the night:
Whether you want to stay up until sunrise or pass out on the couch, we’ve created the perfect space complete with a pull-out couch, bean bags and pillows for you to cozy up with “new releases” from the ‘90s. Crack open a two-liter of Pepsi before locking into a video game, charting your future in a game of MASH, or watching movie after movie. But be wary of reciting “Bloody Mary” in the staff bathroom off of the break room, as you just may summon the ghost rumored to haunt the store. And help yourself to some NERDS, Raisinets and popcorn (heavy on the butter), but make sure you save room for a couple slices.
And remember, the store is all yours for the night! So let loose, blast the boombox and wear your favorite ‘90s denim so that you feel right at home in another era.
TBH I'm in it for the retro Doritos.
Only three "quarantine pods" of four people are going to get to experience whatever this is, as the Blockbuster is only available on Airbnb for three nights in September.
On 8/17 at 1 p.m. PT, we’re inviting movie lovers from the area to request to book one of these three, one-night stays that will take place on 9/18, 9/19, and 9/20 for up to four people.
Best of luck to anyone trying to make their dreams of sleeping in a Blockbuster come true.
