Whether as a visual element or as an indispensable prop, cigarettes could be seen in almost every classical noir film, helps to depict and reflect character’s emotion, power, or desire.

It has almost become a signature of “noir style”.

"The FEEDBACK Monthly Film Festival is back for 2018. Our home is The Carlton Cinemas, located in the heart of downtown Toronto at 20 Carlton Street. The event runs from 7pm to 9:10pm."
