Sith Stomps Competition on Per Theater Charts

May 24th, 2005

It's been a while since the overall box office champion topped the Per Theater Charts, but that's just what Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith did this weekend. The film fell just short of setting a record for highest per theater average for a saturation level release (3,000 or more theaters), as its per theatre average of $29,619 was just below the $31,768 earned by Spider-Man. The only other film to reach the $10,000 level was Mysterious Skin with $13,300; the film has now reached that milestone for the third weekend in a row, very impressive. And while it didn't quite make it there, it is worth noting that Mad Hot Ballroom fell just short with $9,931 despite a serious increase in its theater count.

Just one film hit a major milestone as Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room just made it to $2 million over the weekend. The film has peaked at the box office, but that certainly won't be the last milestone it reaches.
