For thousands and thousands, Saturday evening within the 1990s and 2000s meant searching your native Blockbuster for a movie, taking it dwelling and kicking again on the couch.
Then streaming occurred, and movie-lovers may entry the most recent releases with the clicking of a button.
Blockbuster filed for chapter within the US in 2010. Right this moment, there is only one retailer left on the planet, in Oregon.
However now, locals can have an opportunity for one final Blockbuster sleepover contained in the world’s last retailer.
- ‘I run the final Blockbuster’
Movie fanatics from Deschutes County, Oregon, in search of an evening of nostalgia will have the chance to be given the keys to the store for a night from 18 to 20 September.
The shop – which can have three quarantine pods to make sure a socially distanced film evening – might be kitted out with a pull-out sofa, bean-bags and pillows for guests to cosy up with “new releases” from the ’90s.
There may even be a boombox and retro video video games for guests to play into the evening.
And the worth? About the identical price of a rented ’90s VHS, at $4 (£3).
