To me it will always and forever be Fashion Central, even though the building has now gone back to its original name of The Alberta Block.

High Life   Money in Fists SMALL

It’s 1989. ATMs are the new thing and Dick (Ryan Luhning) has a great idea on how to pull a job to get tons of money. He recruits his freshly out of jail friend Bug (Haysam Kadri) and the brains of the job Donnie (Joel Cochrane).
