DVD and Video Rental and Purchase

Renting movies in MazatlanWant to rent a movie in Mazatlan? If so, the location where you will probably find the DVD you want will be very familiar: Blockbuster.

While brick-and-mortar film rental may be in decline in the United States and Canada because of Netflix (which has a substantial presence in Mazatlan and throughout Mexico) and other streaming media services, the traditional video store continues to thrive in the Pearl of The Pacific.

There are certainly many Mexican video stores in Mazatlan, but most will probably disappoint American and Canadian visitors. While some are large, they are often packed with very large numbers of the same DVD titles -- making for a limited selection no matter how large the store may be -- and sometimes carry English language films dubbed into Spanish, which is pretty unsatisfying to most native English speakers.

The two Mazatlan Blockbuster stores, on the other hand, carry virtually all of their English language films with English audio, and offer a far wider selection of classic English language cinema DVDs.

Blockbuster
Info about DVD / video rental and purchase in Mazatlan

The largest Blockbuster Video in Mazatlan is just inland from Valentino's on Camarón Sábalo. It is a substantial store, with a fairly wide selection of movies on DVD to choose from, including a good selection of foreign and art films.

There is also a smaller Blockbuster located on Insurgentes beside the Soriana supermarket, which also carries many foreign movie titles and classic Hollywood cinema.

While it is unlikely -- but not impossible -- that your Blockbuster sales person will speak fluent English, both Blockbusters are friendly places to rent movies, and issue membership cards to tourists and seasonal visitors with reasonable identification.

Both Blockbusters are open every day; have secure off-street parking; 24-hour drop boxes, accept credit cards, sell used and new DVDs and video games, and offer a wide and deep selection of movie-time junk food.
