    • Synopsis
    • The “Duque de Alba” is the last adult movie theatre remaining in Madrid. Rafael, the projectionist, works hard every day in order to make the place tidier. He hand-paints the movie posters himself, he puts flowers and houseplants around, he fits out the entrance… Even though pornography is mostly consumed online, the theatre works due to a fixed clientele. The “Duque de Alba” is, indeed, more than just an adult movie theatre: it is a shelter, a refuge. Yet Rafael has to face a new problem now: Luisa, the ticket clerk with whom he’s worked with for more than thirty years, the only one who helps him make the theatre a better place, is about to retire.
