The last remaining Blockbuster video rental store is located in Bend, Oregon. It became the last one in the world when the Blockbuster in Perth, Australia, closed two years before. It was already very popular when it became the last location on Earth. It was visited by people all across the United States and even Taiwan and London.

In 2020, Taylor Morden and Zeke Kamm released their Netlfix original documentary “The Last Blockbuster” where they tell the story of Bend’s Blockbuster and the demise of this super cherished brand. This documentary brought enormous attention to the last Blockbuster, bringing more and more visitors from all around the world and the merchandising sales going through the roof.

The documentary follows the demise of Blockbuster as a brand since, in 2010, it declared bankruptcy, and all corporate-owned stores went down by 2014, leaving the locally owned franchisees to stand for themselves, and one by one, they closed.

You can watch “The Last Blockbuster” on Netflix, and make sure to follow the last Blockbuster on Instagram.
