Theater Averages: White Girl Starts in the Black with Average of $10,155

September 7th, 2016

White Girl

There were only two films to earn more than $10,000 on the theater average chart. White Girl lead the way with an average of $11,353 in three theaters. Meanwhile, No Manches Frida earned an average $10,155 in 362 theaters, which is even more impressive.

There were very few other new limited releases and none of them did well at the box office. Max Rose struggled with $4,000 in one theater. Naam Hai Akira just missed the Mendoza Line with an average of $1,925 in 71 theaters. Klovn Forever was a disaster earning an average of just $172 in five theaters.

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

  • Equity has been in theaters for more than a month and it finally topped $1 million. I don’t think it will get to $2 million.
  • Greater missed the Mendoza Line last weekend, but this weekend it shaved nearly half of its theaters and saw its theater average grow. This helped it reached $1 million, but I’m not sure how much further it will go.
  • Indignation made it to $3 million, but $4 million seems unlikely.
  • No Manches Frida opened with $3 million over the three-day weekend and $4 million including Monday. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
  • Hands of Stone got to $3 million over the weekend and $4 million if you include Monday. It should reach $5 million shortly; however, its theater count is about to be destroyed, so that’s as far as it will go.
  • Southside with You topped $4 million on Friday and $5 million on Monday. It won’t get to $10 million.
  • Café Society got to $10 million. It won’t get to $15 million.
  • Hell or High Water did better than expected reaching $10 million before the weekend and $15 million on Monday. It has made more than Eddie the Eagle and is just behind Norm of the North on the Yearly Chart.
