The Fly (1986)
Exterior Street Scene
Yonge and Dundas

The Fly, released in 1986, features the Yonge-Dundas Square area before its “revitalisation” as a major commercial juncture and tourist centre in the 1990s. In this scene, Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum), having proven his newfound strength in an arm-wrestling contest which leaves his opponent with a broken arm, exits the sleazy bar with the woman he won in the fight.
