It's The End of An Era As This Fort Smith Business Closes

Cameron Eittreim

The rise of digital streaming has been a big blow to physical media stores. In the Fort Smith area, we lost the Hastings store a few years back, but we still had Movie Town. Well, one of the well known Movie Town locations on Phoenix Avenue will finally close their doors sometime in August. There has not been a definitive last day of business announced yet.

There is something special about going into a physical movie store, and it is something that I have worked to let my children enjoy. And there is more to this wonderful place than just movies and video games, because there are also various collectibles to choose from. Movie Town is one of the most well known institutions in Fort Smith.

This great place for movie buffs has survived through the Blockbuster era, Hastings on Phoenix Avenue closing down, and even the dominant rise of steaming. But the final curtain call has come, and the store will announce their last day of business in August. So before that happens, you need to get over to Movie Town and see some deals going down.

First and foremost is the massive selection of DVD movies they still have left. Even if you haven't fired up the old DVD player in a while, there will be a movie that will catch your eye. You should let your children enjoy the fun and excitement of going to the movie theater. There is still a lot of inventory left in the store, and if you want to stock up on movies and collectibles, now is the time to do so.

There are also dozens of POP action figures to choose from, as well as countless Magic The Gathering cards that you can get. There is also a promotion going right now, where if you spend $200 in the store, you will get a free handheld game. The atmosphere at Movie Town is still high spirited, even though the store is closing soon.

This place has been a focal point of movie culture in Fort Smith for a long time. Although it is sad that another well known movie spot will be closing, you can still experience the nostalgia of visiting a movie store one last time.
