The fire exit leads into the center of a small alleyway. It’s the middle of the night, it’s snowing, and your current attire provides little warmth. As soon as you walk outside, the fire exit from the theater closes shut. The snow melts away as it lands on the paved ground.
To one end of the alley is a well lit street. Snow sparkles as it blows past the yellow glow of a halogen street light.
To the other end of the alley is a dead end. The large sandstone building that blocks off the alley has a door labeled “Employee Use Only.”
There’s no handle to enter the theater from the alley.
