Theater Averages: Green Room Pulls in the Green with an average of $29,328

April 20th, 2016

Green Room

Green Room led the way with an average of $29,328 in three theaters. This is yet another success for A24 and whoever is in charge of acquisitions over there needs to get a raise. The overall number one film, The Jungle Book was next with an average of $25,636. Sing Street was well back with an average of $12,715 in five theaters. The only holdover in the $10,000 club was Vita Activa: The Spirit of Hannah Arendt, which was down a mere 18% to $10,814 in its lone theater.

The rest of the new limited releases were mostly okay. Our Last Tango opened with $6,550 in one theater. The Measure of a Man was next with an average of $5,006 in two theaters. The First Monday in May was close behind with an average of $4,962 in 20 theaters. Fan opened with $1.36 million in 280 theaters for an average of $4,847. The rest of the new limited releases had terrible openings. In Harmony only managed $809 in its single theater. The Adderall Diaries bombed hard, with an average of $184 in 30 theaters. Okay, this film was also distributed by A24, so maybe hold off on that raise.

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

  • Everybody Wants Some got to $1 million just before the weekend. It will get to $2 million, but it won't expand too much more than where it is now.
  • Fan opened with more than $1 million, so it obviously got to that milestone over the weekend.
  • The Other Side of the Door got to $3 million just before the weekend, but that's as far as it will go.
  • Hello, My Name is Doris got to $10 million before the weekend. $15 million is possible, but not likely.
