Synopsis

Detroit has more fires than any city in the United States: A population drop from 1.85 million in 1950 to near 700,000 today has left 80,000 abandoned structures as kindling. The result is a city with 30,000 fire calls a year—the highest fire-load in America. On average, Detroit sees 30 structure fires daily, of which 90% are estimated to be intentional. By comparison, Los Angeles, with a population of 4 million, sees only 11 structure fires per day. To make matters worse, with Detroit on the verge of bankruptcy, the Detroit Fire Department is one of the worst funded departments in the world. Burn takes audiences to the front lines of Detroit and into the fires and lives of the men who fight them, exploring human struggles, hope and personal courage in the face of overwhelming odds.

Per Theater Chart: Hyde Hits it Out of the Park

December 11th, 2012

Hyde Park on the Hudson opened on top of the per theater chart with an average of $20,341 in four theaters. That is good for a limited release, but bad for a potential Awards Season contender, which is how many people saw the film prior to its release. Additionally, with weak reviews, it has little hope at long legs. Burn was much further back at $13,602, also in four theaters. Rust and Bone saw its theater count double to four, but its per theater average actually grew to $13,015. Its word-of-mouth is outstanding. Beware of Mr. Baker remained in the $10,000 club with $10,349 in one theater. More...
