Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Exiting

I do not understand why I keep getting errors

I keep on trying to get this right, but it is keeping on telling me Bummer! Didn't get an exit from start_movie. I would appreciate if someone would help me. Thank you!

firedoor.py
import sys

a = (input("Do you want to start the movie?"))

if a != "n" or "N":
    print("Enjoy the show!")
else:
    sys.exit()
