    You keep bringing up Netflix but Netflix wasn't really that big either. Blockbuster started dropping pretty early because their prices were just too much. I remember my Blockbuster only lasting like a month then closing. I think Redbox and family video is what killed it. Netflix was kinda a joke back in 2006 so I don't see much of an impact.

    If Blockbuster were to come back it should be as some sort of Cafe/Rental mashup store, before my local video shop shut down I thought what better addition to a place like that would be than a section where you can sit down and chill while your kids look for something to watch back at home, double down on the experience it offered.

    As a kid, I'd always go to Family Video with my parents and pick out a video game or a movie. Only recently it shut down. A lot of people went there, though. I already miss that Family Video and it's been gone only 2 months.

    I was a child when our towns blockbuster shut down. All I can remember is the hot emo chick who worked front counter... AND THE SMELL!!! It’s a smell I hated as a kid, but would pay loads of money just to have a “blockbuster candle”. It’s an indescribable that I can only describe as hot-topic meets an antic shop.

    Cory Ellis you're telling me that Blockbuster IS still alive?? As long as there's one :) My family was die-hard for Blockbuster, we had the membership where you get a movie in the mail each month and special deals on rentals and stuff. And we would pick up a movie at least once a week, times were great.

    The first I ever remember hearing about Blockbuster was from the South Park parody of the Shining from 2012 where Randy buys an abandonned Blockbuster store for $10,000 and forces his family to work there with him, then he goes insane because there's no customers and he's in denial about video rental stores being obsolete.
