Post Secondary Education

December 7th, 2004

Bad Education has stretched its amazing streak atop the Per Theatre Charts to thee weeks. With an expansion this weekend, it will probably be the last time the film top the charts, which is good because I'm running out of ideas for headlines using the education theme. This week it was a much closer contest with Bad Education beating out House of Flying Daggers $29,619 to $26,498, with the later film playing in more theatres, 15 to 3. Meanwhile, A Very Long Engagement dropped a spot to third with $18,146 average in four theatres. Rounding out the $10,000 club was Closer, which took in $7.7 million in 476 theatres for an average of $16,193.

This past week also saw some milestones reached for several Per Theatre Charts alumnus:

  • Kinsey hit $3 million early in the weekend and should $4 million this weekend.
  • Like most films, Finding Neverland suffered through a post-Thanksgivings slump, but it wasn't enough to stop it from topping $10 million over the weekend.
  • Sideways crossed $10 million last Monday, and thanks to its strong showing early in award season, it should continue to perform well for a long time to come.
