The Duque de Alba is the last remaining adult movie theatre in Madrid. Even though pornography is mostly consumed online, the theatre works due to a regular clientele. The Duque de Alba is, indeed, more than just an adult movie theatre: it is a shelter, a refuge. Rafael, the projectionist, works hard every day in order to keep the place nice, but now Luisa, the ticket clerk with whom he’s worked for more than thirty years, the only one who helps him make the theatre a better place, is about to retire.
