This proved to be a bumper weekend for movies in limited release.
The September Issue was the number one film on the per theater chart, and it won by a huge margin with an average of $36,736 to an average of $12,133 for Big Fan. The Headless Woman was right behind with $11,862 in one theater. Der Baader Meinhof Komplex grew over the weekend to earn $10,564. Brighton Rock returned to the $10,000 club with $10,392 in one theater. And Still Walking was the final film in the $10,000 club, earning an average of $10,149 in two theaters.

Whatever Works led all releases on the per theater chart this weekend, earning $266,000 in 9 theaters for an average of $29,574; however, given its mixed reviews, I'm a little doubtful about its chances to expand over the coming weeks.
The overall box office leader, The Proposal, also reached the $10,000 plateau with an impressive average of $11,004, while the re-release of Brighton Rock was the only other such film at $10,626 in one theater.

Not a big list of limited releases this week, and it includes two-releases, two Canadian movies, and two movies that I thought was opening last week. (I think I just got the dates wrong last week, which I believe is a sign of senility.) There are a couple films that look promising, but none look likely to expand truly wide.
