The world's last Blockbuster

The world's last Blockbuster store is on airbnb and it looks incredible.

It's located in Bend, Oregon and comes with a living room, and all the snacks you can imagine.

Locals were given the opportunity to book an overnight stay in celebration of store's 20th anniversary.

However, there were only three nights available - September 18th, 19th and 20th.

Booking opened to the public yesterday and it appears all dates have been sold.

The rental allows up to four people stay at a time, and they encouraged groups to be from the same household.

Store manager Sandi Harding told CNN that they only charged $4 for each stay.

She added, 'a penny more than what you would spend for a new release.'

This cost includes a pre-selected lineup of '90s movies, or guests can choose from their wide selection of films in store.

They also supply a living room area with a pull-out couch, bean bags and pillows.

There's a television, a VCR and guests can choose from the stores wide selection of VHS tapes.

Harding admitted to CNN, 'It was a challenge to find that chunky TV!'

This experience is the store's way of thanking the people of Bend for keeping the last Blockbuster going.

Even amid the pandemic, it seems they've felt tremendous support from the community.

For those of us outside of Oregon

The store have also created a way for those of us in other parts of the world to get involved.

They've created a, 'Callgorithm,' where people can go if they're, 'in need of a fresh movie suggestion.'

'Tell us what you like and don’t like, and a real human will give you tailored recommendations.'

The store have also set up an online shop, which you can check out here.
