5 Times Honest Ed's Was Featured In Popular Culture

As Honest Ed's closed its doors on December 31, 2016, the iconic Toronto landmark will truly be missed my millions of Torontonians. Lucky for us, on February 23-26, 2017, The Centre for Social Innovation is planning "An Honest Farewell Party/ Extravaganza" and you're all invited. In honor of the upcoming multi-day celebration, and to bid Honest Ed's a Buzzfeed farewell, here are 5 times Honest Ed's was featured in popular culture:

3. In the Long Kiss Goodnight

In the 1996 action film The Long Kiss Goodnight directed by Renny Harlin, Charly Bartmore (played by Geena Davis) is called on to dispatch some killers in Atlantic City. However, those twinkling lights in the background haven't fooled us.
