Three Blockbuster VHS cases

Even though VHS tapes and DVDs have largely fallen by the wayside due to the advent of streaming, it’s understandable if you still feel pangs of nostalgia for the simpler times. For those looking to relive the glory days when you had to go to Blockbuster to get your hands on the hottest new rentals, you’re in for a true treat. One company is giving away a movie night in the world’s last remaining Blockbuster store, inviting you and your pals to kick up your heels and watch the flicks of your choice for one night only.

Located in Bend, Oregon, the last standing Blockbuster has become a fan favorite location (as well as a onetime Airbnb rental and the subject of a recent documentary, which you can watch on Netflix… the irony). But if a trip to rural Oregon isn’t quite in the budget, fear not. The pros behind the Blockbuster Party Game are giving away a private viewing and game night experience inside the Bend store, offering up a cool $3,000 to help cover flights and accommodation. Once you’re there, you’ll receive everything you need for a truly epic Blockbuster night: drinks, food, the Blockbuster Trilogy game set, comfy couches, a huge TV, and access to the store’s entire catalog for the screening of your choosing, of course.

Interested fans can enter the contest anytime before 11:59 p.m. ET on October 30, and the Blockbuster night will take place on Saturday, November 12 from 7 p.m. to 12 midnight. U.S. residents 18 and up are invited to enter, and the winner will be notified within 48 hours of the closing date, by November 1. You’ll be invited to bring up to four of your nearest and dearest movie buffs, and the toughest part will be choosing what to watch on the store’s big screen TV.

Even if you don’t win, you can still relive your youth by way of Netflix’s upcoming comedy series, “Blockbuster,” which hits the streamer on November 3. All you need is your favorite blankets, some popcorn, and your candy of choice, and you’re good to go.
