The final scene in the film Cinema Paradiso[1] is a montage of deleted kissing scenes from the movies shown at the local movie theatre Cinema Paradiso, where the protagonist Salvatore used to hang out as a kid, keeping the old projectionist, Alfredo (Philippe Noiret), company.

During Salvatore's childhood, the audience of Cinema Paradiso can frequently be heard booing whenever there are missing sections, causing the films to suddenly jump, bypassing a critical romantic kiss or embrace. These missing sections are "censored" for being 'pornographic' by the village priest. The deleted scenes are piled on the projection room floor. Most of them are kissing scenes.

At the end of the film Salvatore takes home an unlabeled film reel and discovers that it is a very special montage. It contains all the deleted kissing scenes that the village priest ordered to be cut from movies. Alfredo spliced all the sequences together to form a single film sequence.
