Summary: Anthology with short story about afterlife being a giant movie theater.
I am looking for a collection of short stories of a particular author. It was published in hardcover, and I picked up at a Barnes and Noble sometime in the late 80s or early 90s. The cover artwork was dark and shadowy with I believe red lettering.
The short stories principally of a surreal nature; some in the vein of absurdist dark humor, others bleak and bordering on horror. Unfortunately I only recall the plot line of one of the stories which for some reason I think was tied to this collection's title. The story implied that the character was in some sort of an afterlife which consisted of a gigantic movie theater where people needed to interpret an endless series of films and the main character makes an attempt to reach the projector room (God?).
