The Beverley is the last cinema in Paris—maybe the world—still screening 35mm porn films. MAURICE captures the owner/projectionist clinging to a dying art as his entire world slips towards dodo-like extinction.

"Maurice" profiles the owner-projectionist of what may be the last porno movie house in Europe still playing 35 mm films. A champion of 70s vintage pornographic films which he has projected to a loyal clientele for over forty years at his "Beverly" cinema in Paris' Theater district, Maurice Laroche imagines himself as technician of a dying art form, purveyor of love and adoration of the female form, and defender of this last bulwark of sincere longing and honest lust in the face of impersonal modernity and digital consumerism.
