March 22nd, 2016

Midnight Special

Midnight Special had the best theater average for a film that opened in 2016 earning $190,000 in five theaters for an average of $38,002. The only other film in the $10,000 club was A Space Program with $10,247 in its lone theater.

There were a lot of other new limited releases with a wide range of results. On the high end, My Golden Years earned an average of $8,949 in three theaters. Too Late opened with $7,000 in one theater. Kapoor and Sons earned nearly $1 million in 143 theaters giving it an average of $6,898. Krisha's opening was okay earning an average of $5,125 in two theaters. Sweet Bean was close behind with $4,630 in one theater. Ktown Cowboys struggled with an average of $3,131 in four theaters. Burning Bodhi bombed with an average of $356, also in four theaters.

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

  • Hello, My Name is Doris earned nearly $1 million over the weekend reaching that milestone during just its second weekend of release. Additionally, its theater average was $7,798, meaning it still has room to grow.
  • Anomalisa had a massive expansion over the weekend and that helped it get to $3 million in total.
  • The Big Short made it all the way to $70 million, which is a milestone that less than 50 films released in 2015 managed to get to.
