A Free Blockbuster Box Popped Up in Fishtown Where You Can Take a Movie and Leave a Movie!
If you were born before the 90’s, chances are you had a Blockbuster card at one point. Making it a Blockbuster night was a whole vibe. You’d take time out of your day to drive to your nearest store and peruse the aisles until a movie cover caught your eye. However, now that technology has advanced with streaming services Blockbuster nights are nothing more than a distant memory. Well until now. A national Free Blockbuster movement has made its way to Philly.
Free Blockbuster essentially turns old and unused newspaper boxes and repurposes them as mini Blockbuster to-go stands. Originally started in LA, the Free Blockbuster movement began as a way to repurpose old newspaper stands that have been abandoned and left to rot on the street. Then slowly but surely folks across the country started to join in on the fun. Local Kim Lettiere is the person curating the Fishtown Free Blockbuster box and has started an IG page @freeblockbusterfishtown.
The local Blockbuster box is located off E. Columbia & Girard Ave. Movie goers are encouraged to take a movie and and leave a movie. Oh, and of course be kind & rewind!
