Escape Great on IMAX

November 12th, 2008

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa opened in more than 4,000 theaters in total, and that included 129 IMAX screens, where it earned $3.63 million over the weekend. That gave it a per theater average of just over $28,000 on the really big screen, which was close to double its regular per theater average. It is also more than twice the $1.6 million Eagle Eye opened with in 84 theaters in September.

Sadly, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was pushed back until next year, so that won't be playing in IMAX theaters soon, but we only have to wait until December for the next big IMAX release, The Day the Earth Stood Still.
