It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Blockbuster video rental stores. In the era of VHS and DVD, Blockbuster was king. No night was complete without running up to the neighborhood store and picking up a copy of 'Mulan' and some chocolate covered cookie dough. Blockbuster is survived by its streaming rental service. The company will be buried in the same cemetery as Hollywood Video.
