Theater Averages: Miles Opens Ahead of the Competition with $28,633

April 6th, 2016

Miles Ahead

Miles Ahead led the way on the theater average chart with $28,633 in four theaters. Vaxxed: From Cover Up to Catastrophe was right behind with $28,339 in one theater. As someone who doesn't want to see measles make a comeback, this is a scary result. Everybody Wants Some earned an average of $16,440 in 19 theaters over the weekend after opening in five theaters on Wednesday. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice remained in the $10,000 club with an average of $12,062. Saturday's Warrior and Chongqing Hot Pot had very close averages at $10,671 and $10,098 respectively.

The rest of the new limited releases ranged from merely average to terrible. Kill Me, Deadly was on the high end with an average of $5,800 in two theaters. The Dark Horse was next with an average of $4,244, also in two theaters. Madama Butterfly was the latest live event presented by The Met. It earned $1.70 million in 683 theaters for an average of $2,490. Obviously, being a live event limits the number of showings to one per theater, so this is a good average. Next Time I'll Aim for the Heart rounded out the list with $310 in its lone theater.

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

  • Embrace the Serpent got to $1 million just before the weekend. That's as far as it will go.
  • Madama Butterfly earned more than $1 million during its opening weekend, so obviously it reached that milestone.
  • Kapoor and Sons hit $2 million before the weekend and there's a slim chance it will get to $3 million.
  • Eye in the Sky expanded semi-wide getting to $5 million in the process. The film likely won't expand significantly more, but it also won't disappear from theaters quickly.
  • Hello, My Name is Doris also expanded and reached $5 million over the weekend. It too has a shot at $10 million, but it might see its theater count drop soon.
