Per Theater Chart: Sleeping's Shocking Start

September 16th, 2015

Sleeping with Other People

Sleeping with Other People wasn't expected to do well in theaters, because it only earned mixed reviews, while it was also playing on VOD. Despite this, it led the way on the per theater chart with an average of $17,820 in five theaters. Goodbye Mommy was in second place with an average of $15,063. It could do well in the art house circuit, but expanding wide will be nearly impossible for this German film. Meet the Patels was right behind with an average of $14,436. It too could do well in the art house circuit, but it is a documentary, so expanding wide is likely out of the question. The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution was the only holdover in the $10,000 club with an average of $13,288 in three theaters. The overall number one film, The Perfect Guy, was next with an average of $11,656. The final film in the $10,000 club was A Brilliant Mind with an average of $10,469 in three theaters.

The rest of the new limited releases had a large spread of results. Coming Home did very well with an average of $8,787 in three theaters. Paul Taylor Creative Domain also did well earning $8,150 in its lone theater. Breathe was more average with $5,063, also in one theater. Time Out of Mind was close behind with an average of $4,734 in four theaters. Welcome to Leith struggled with $3,707 in one theater. Finally, The Challenger bombed with an average of $437 in 28 theaters.

This past week also saw milestones reached for a few Per Theater Chart alumni:

  • Welcome Back reached $1 million just before the weekend. It won't get to $2 million.
  • Learning to Drive got to $1 million over the weekend and will pass $2 million this weekend.
  • Mistress America hit $2 million over the weekend. However, its per theater average is terrible, so it will see its theater count fall dramatically over the next couple of weeks. It is very likely not going to get to $3 million.
  • Un gallo con muchos huevos crossed $5 million over the weekend. It should get to $10 million, but it will be very close.
