Nowadays, streaming services dominate the world of entertainment, where we can watch all the movies and series we love with one click, easy access, and speed. But it was not always this way. In the not-so-distant past, the only way to watch movies outside of TV and Cinema was to go to a video store. Now I present to you my idea/ project, based on the largest video rental store in the world, which has shaped generations in several countries, including here in Brazil, we are talking about Blockbuster. Founded in 1985 in Dallas, USA, the company has been present in 26 countries with more than 4500 stores and has shaped the childhood and youth of many millennials like me.
Well, my project is something that goes back to my past, to my childhood, to my youth, because I used to go to Blockbuster every Friday to rent a movie and/or a game, the good old days. Unfortunately, the company does not exist anymore because it has fallen victim to streaming services, and I think a good way to remember Blockbuster and the era of video stores would be to have a set from a video store, specifically a Blockbuster, and besides that, I believe that a set like this will bring a lot of nostalgia to many millennials or everyone who lived in the 80s, 90s, and 00s.
The project consists of a modular building made of LEGO bricks with a large parking lot for customers, the famous sign in the shape of a movie ticket with the words Blockbuster, inside, right at the entrance, there is a welcome mat and several aisles with countless VHS of different genres, there are also soft drinks, some sweets, and popcorn, well, popcorn is also available at the entrance/checkout. Ahhh and not to forget the aisle full of Games and the Drobbox to facilitate the return of the VHS
