*Morgan Freeman narrator voice.* On planet Earth there was thought to be no more Blockbusters left in the entire universe, but alas we we're wrong! It has since been discovered that one Blockbuster remains in the land. This is the story of the last Blockbuster store. Alright, slight monologue over. If you haven't already guessed, the topic of conversation today is Blockbuster—the very last remaining Blockbuster to be exact. If you are a product of the Blockbuster era, then you are already more than aware of what it represented—especially to those who were around during the 1990s and 2000s. If you weren't around while Blockbuster was in it's heyday, allow us to explain what is was like.
The hype was very much real. Blockbuster wasn't just the place that you went to rent the latest movie releases and video games. It was one of the Friday and Saturday night hangout spots (especially for teens who weren't old enough to get into clubs yet). People went there to chill and kick it, sometimes music would be playing, and you could buy drinks and snacks too. When you were finally done hanging out, you would rent whatever movies and games you wanted, and then head back to the crib.
