James, Justin, and Kieran traveled to the last Blockbuster Video that's located in Bend, Oregon!! They took a road trip down from Portland, after Portland Retro Gaming Expo weekend October, 2019. The sights, sounds, and smells of their old stomping grounds was like something else. A flash from the past, where you would always go every Friday night to get the newest movie releases, hottest games, or obscure b-movie rentals. Sadly, Blockbuster's 9,000 world-wide locations dwindled down to just one. But, that comes with everything turning digital... or with movies just slapped into the Red Box at your local grocery store. Regardless, the Last Blockbuster in Bend is a tribute to anyone who lived in the 90s, especially with their museum section and classic memorabilia everywhere. Thanks to the owner Sandi for allowing us to film in the store! And, sorry that our audio isn't the best, the store is very active.

  • So many memories at blockbuster, going there multiple times in a day, all the movies, watching this and seeing the very nostalgic layout is a blast from the past, and I'm so surprised that they still have one open, it's like an epic side quest you'd play in a game

  • should go in there and pick 10 weekly videos. most of the fun was in picking videos. took me 2 hours sometimes to pick 10. then just put them all back. just walk on out and queue them up online on tubi and other online sites.

  • I used to work at Blockbuster back in the day too. I remember getting my BB card on my 18th birthday. Nostalgia aside, I’m happy that I live in the future and can summon any movie that I want to watch to the device in my pocket whenever it pleases me.

  • It's sad to finally feel how the elderly feel in this world. It's too weird knowing I grew up in a time of vhs and now we have the tech we have today. It gets me excited for what's to come, minus the corruption.

  • I worked for Blockbusters for close to ten years. Managed 3 of their stores and is pretty much responsible for most of my film education. I hated the place by the end and was glad when I left but after a few years away found myself going back to it as a customer and miss it plenty now. Still remember my account number as had to use it every day and loved browsing though my watch history. Think I rented over 4000 films in total.
