Indies Should be the most Thankful

December 2nd, 2003

Smaller, independent films dominated the top Ten Per Theatre Average chart this week, taking the first seven spots.

In top spot was In America. The story of Irish immigrants earned over $200,000 in just 11 theatres for and average of $18,657.

As we move down the list we see a lot of foreign films in the mix. The Triplets of Belleville, a French film, just missed first place with $18,013 per theatre. The Indian film Kal Ho Naa Ho finished third with $14,581. And in its second week was the French-Canadian film The Barbarian Invasions, which took $8,781 per theatre. Good enough for seventh place.

Also earning more than $10,000 per theatre were 21 Grams ($13,539 for its second weekend), My Architect ($14,421in its third weekend) andand the opening of The Cooler with $11,725.

The Station Agent continues to do well as it topped $3 million, twice what Miramax paid for the distribution rights.
