Per Theater Chart was Full of Win

March 30th, 2011

Seven films topped the $10,000 mark on the per theater chart this week, but leading the way were last week's top two films: Bill Cunningham New York and Win Win. The former earned $21,786 in 3 theaters while the latter was right behind with $20,192 in 23. My Perestroika earned $17,680 in its lone theater over the weekend and $25,084 since its Wednesday opening. Mia and the Migoo and Miral were neck-and-neck at $16,975 and $16,561. They also share something else, bad reviews, so their futures are in doubt. Trophy Wife earned an average of $12,288 in seven theaters. Finally, Jane Eyre made nearly $1 million over the weekend in 90 theaters for an average of $10,778.

None of the rest of the new limited releases even came remotely close to the $10,000 mark. White Irish Drinkers was the best of the rest with a mere $3,217. Peep World was the only other new release to avoid opening below the Mendoza Line, and it was close with an average of $2,234 in three theaters. The 5th Quarter managed a mere $1,645, but it was playing in more than 100 theaters, so there's that to take into account. Freedom opened with just $1,224 in one theater while Illegal opened with just $404 in one theater.

This past week also saw milestones reached for a few Per Theater Charts alumni:

  • Jane Eyre made nearly $1 million over the weekend alone and it will hit $2 million by the weekend and $3 million by this time next week.
  • I Love You, Phillip Morris got to $2 million, which is as far as it will go.
  • Of Gods and Men also reached $2 million, but it has a shot at $3 million.
  • From Prada to Nada just reached $3 million, seven weeks after it reached $2 million. That's as far as it will go.
