Blockbuster, a latecomer to online video rentals, announced Wednesday that it is testing movie rental kiosks at some Papa John's pizza outlets and Family Dollar stores. Some 250 movies will be offered at each kiosk for $1.00 -- far less than the price Blockbuster charges in its blue brick-and-mortar outlets. In a partnership with Redbox, McDonald's has been offering the top 30 DVD titles in kiosks at some of its outlets since 2004. In an interview with Bloomberg News, Papa John's CEO Nigel Travis suggested that pizza and movies go well together. "You are seeing a consolidation of food and entertainment. It definitely drives traffic," he said.
