Saving Blockbuster



April 10, 2011 – Comments (2)

How about converting Blockbuster into a: 

Movie Rental Bar?

In this way, it will look exactly like Las Vegas bars that have video poker screens or slot machine screens right at the counter where you are ordering drinks.  Instead of those slot machine screens.... You would have a Google Android powered Tablet displaying a wide range of video rentals you can pick from.

People tend to spend the 1-2 hours at a bar that is the length of time required to watch a Movie. 
I think even a Coffee House Rental in this fashion also works. People still WANT to go to a Coffee House..People still WANT to go to a BAR....

Now they can watch a Movie if they want to when they arrive.

Of course you would have Headphones for listening to the movies so as not to disturb other people's movie watching.

This simple solution would be a winner in my opinion for what DISH Network should do with the existing Blockbuster Bricks and Mortar.

You can make sure to have Popcorn machines available for when someone wants to buy some Orville Movie Theatre Popcorn. 

If Patrons simply do not have the time to devote to watching a movie during their visit to the Coffee Shop or Bar, they can use any mobile device such as a Jump Drive to download their Movie Rental which expires/erases after you view it as part of the Viewing Software's Functionality.

So basically a movie theater that serves beer.  I bet no one has ever thought of that before.
