egress

Exit.

According to the 1980 musical Barnum, when spectators were staying too long at his Barnum's American Museum, thus preventing new patrons from entering, P. T. put up a sign: To the Egress-->. The less-educated found themselves outside on the street, forced with having to pay another admittance fee if they wished to re-enter the museum.

Antonym: ingress.
