The Last Remaining Blockbuster In The Entire World Is In Bend, Oregon
Do you remember the days where you had to drive to a video rental store for your home movie night? Browsing aisle upon aisle of new releases and classic films… it really was an experience. And Blockbuster was *the* iconic video rental hub of the day; the Coca-Cola of movie rentals. While digital downloads and streaming services eventually rendered Blockbuster obsolete, the tangible experience of renting a movie is something that can’t really be replaced. Oregonians know this, as evidenced by the still-standing Blockbuster in Bend. This beloved place has become a point of pride for the town; an attraction offering a nostalgic experience people seek out. And, as of 2019, it’s the last remaining blockbuster in the entire world — a feat that deserves to be celebrated!
