A statement on the official Facebook page for the documentary reads: “A lot of people know that Blockbuster had the chance to buy Netflix early on and they passed on the opportunity.

“In an ironic twist of fate, our movie The Last Blockbuster is coming to Netflix one week from today.

“We are beyond excited for people to get to see this tribute to era of home video on the world’s largest streaming service.

“Just don’t forget to rewind it when you’re done watching it and bring it back by noon on Wednesday.”

You can watch a trailer for The Last Blockbuster, which arrives on Netflix on March 15, below.

The world’s last remaining Blockbuster store was recently transformed into an Airbnb, allowing fans to access a pull-out couch, a TV and unlimited access to the store’s extensive catalogue of titles.

Blockbuster has been celebrated by a number of artists in recent years with Drake marking his 32nd birthday in 2018 by throwing party dedicated to the 2000s, featuring a Blockbuster video wall, a Rap City Booth, cars from the classic MTV show Pimp My Ride and more.

A year before, Kurt Cobain‘s Blockbuster Video card was also put up for auction along with a variety of his other personal possessions.

The card was issued at the former 1508 North Orange Grove store location in Los Angeles.
