Washington Post: The internet rediscovered Blockbuster’s website. Press play on nostalgia.. “The movie rental franchise, which first opened in 1985 and at its peak had more than 9,000 stores worldwide, has all but disappeared after it filed for bankruptcy in 2010. (A lone Blockbuster-branded store remains in Bend, Ore.) But nostalgia for it was triggered this week when some internet users realized its website, Blockbuster.com, had been revived with the words: ‘We are working on rewinding your movie.’”
