Holidays Help Holdovers Hold On

January 18th, 2006

There were three films that topped $10,000 on the Per Theatre Charts this week, and not one of them was a new release. Cache (Hidden) continued to lead the way earning nearly $120,000 in 10 theatres for a $11,732 average. Not far behind was Fateless, which dropped less than 15% to $10,805 in its lone theatre. Rounding out the list was Transamerica, which dropped less than 1% to $10,108 despite increasing its theatre count from 6 to 9.

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

  • Mrs. Henderson Presents had its best weekend bringing in nearly $400,000 and hitting $1 million alone the way. It's per theatre average is still very healthy and another expansion is warranted.
  • Match Point had another multi-million dollar weekend and reached $5 million over the weekend. That makes the film the highest grossing Woody Allen flick since The Curse of the Jade Scorpion and it should top that film by this time next weekend.
  • Casanova topped $5 million early last week and it should reach $10 million in no time, however, its per theatre average is low enough that it will start shedding theatres at an incredible rate from now on.
  • Brokeback Mountain made it to two milestones since last week surpassing $25 million during the midweek and $30 million over the weekend. Add in an amazing per theatre average, plenty of room to grow, and four Golden Globe Wins and this film has incredible box office potential.
