A short documentary portrait of Maurice Laroche, owner and projectionist of the 'Beverley', the last Porno Cinema in Paris (and possibly Europe, maybe the entire world) still playing 35mm films. The film depicts a technician holding on to his dying Art, even if it is against his own better judgment. 'Maurice' is an anthropological document of a man, a subculture, and a physical space that are slipping towards becoming obsolete.- Written by Anonymous
"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.- Written by Anonymous
