The stay will give guests the opportunity to experience a 90s-themed sleepover and relive the bygone Friday night tradition of movie night. The experience can be booked for $4 (€3.39) plus taxes and fees, which is great value considering movie rentals cost $3.99 (€3.38 €). Store Manager Sandi Harding is listing the store as a thank you for all the Bend community has done recently to support the last store of its kind during these difficult times, and she will be stocking the shelves with all the movies customers want before hand over the keys.

Interested guests should also note host rules that are in line with local guidelines, which include that those requesting to book must be Bend residents and from the same household to minimize risk. The store will be cleaned prior to their arrival and prepared in accordance with CDC guidelines in accordance with Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocol.
