Theater Averages hit by an Apocalypse

June 1st, 2016

X-Men: Apocalypse

There was only one film in the $10,000 club and that was the overall box office leader, X-Men: Apocalypse. That film earned an average of $15,848 during the three-day weekend.

There were not many new limited releases and none of them did well. Unlocking the Cage was the best with $3,708 in one theater over the three-day weekend and $7,502 from Wednesday through Sunday. Presenting Princess Shaw was next with an average of $1,605 in three theaters, but it is playing on VOD. Likewise, The Ones Below is also playing on VOD, which explains its average of $1,298 in five theaters.

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

  • A Bigger Splash reached $1 million early in the weekend. Its theater average is low enough that it won't expand significantly beyond this point; in fact, it might see its theater count cut on Friday. That said, it should still top $2 million before too long.
  • The Lobster got to $2 million on holiday Monday. It still has room to expand, so it is still too soon to tell where it will end up.
  • The Man Who Knew Infinity hit $2 million over the weekend and should have no trouble getting to $3 million. However, its theater average is low enough to be an issue.
  • Love and Friendship expanded to over 400 theaters and that helped it reach $2 million over the weekend and $3 million on Monday.
