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.

  • Mr.Bboy

    this city or town must not have fast internet for them to still have a block buster

  • mackstertube

    We still have an independent video rental place near our home. It's really awesome.

    I remember walking into Blockbuster as a kid 😥😥😥. The smell of videos and popcorn. If only Blockbuster came out with a steaming service before Netflix it would have been a different outcome.


    There’s one still in Alaska it’ll probably never close because they don’t have very good Internet out there so they have to have movies

    Great video guys. Brought back crazy memories. I worked in a Hollywood Video for a while. Just think it was actually redox that took out the movie stores for the most part. They were gone before most streaming services became dominant

    we took blockbuster for granted

    I was a loyal blockbuster customer. Back when Netflix was still dvd-by-mail, I opted for Blockbuster Total Access. I loved being able to exchange my mailed DVDs at a store to get a new one.

    I remember having a blockbuster in my area, I didn’t care for it because we had a another place called four star video and I knew the person that owned that and when blockbuster came on the scene it took out that local rental place. But that’s pretty cool that there’s one still open it reminds me being a 80s kid renting vhs tapes and popcorn. But thanks for the video.

    The best store to ever close down. I loved blockbuster, I still remember the vanilla air freshener that made me feel right at home every time I walked in. Redbox is trash, you have one day to watch a movie, blockbuster, 9.99 a month, unlimited rentals and you didn't have to scroll through a piece of shit touch screen that 1000+ other people have used. How did this happen? There isn't a single movie streaming service that could replace the selection they had. Mankind is a joke for giving up on such an amazing company because "netflix is more convienant". Isn't that part of the experience? Being able to get out of the house and actually interact with other people?

    At the start of every weekend my parents, siblings and I would go to blockbuster to rent a movie and a PS2 game... I wish we could still do things that way. It was so much simpler.
