It’s hard to imagine a time when Blockbuster Video was the only place to find new movies.
It’s even harder to imagine that time now when we’re leaning on every streaming service to pass the time during the coronavirus quarantines.
Believe it or not, though, there is actually one store left in existence — in Bend, Oregon — and it’s the subject of the new documentary, “The Last Blockbuster.”
Directed by Taylor Morden, the film follows Sandi Harding, the manager of the world’s last remaining Blockbuster Video, as she navigates the difficult task of keeping a video rental store open in the era of Netflix.
Pop Motion Pictures will be releasing “The Last Blockbuster” later this year.
