Theater Averages: Something Good Comes out of Florida

October 11th, 2017

The Florida Project

The Florida Project dominated the theater average chart earning over $150,000 in four theaters for an average of $39,208. This is easily the best new release of the week.

There were a quartet of new limited release that were close together on the chart. Faces, Places earned an average of $6,201 in five theaters, while Dina was right behind with $6,015 in one theater. Up next were Chavela and Architects of Denial, which earned averages of $5,613 and $5,316 respectively. Walking Out earned an average of $2,731 in two theaters. City of Rock only managed an average of $2,687, but it was playing in 43 theaters. Paradise was playing in just one theater and it earned $2,401.

There were also a few films that missed the Mendoza Line, all of which were playing in far too many theaters. The Stray was playing in $640 theaters earning an average of $932. Better Watch Out only managed an average of $503 in 25 theaters. On the other hand, it is playing on Video on Demand, so its box office numbers don’t matter. Finally, there’s Earth: One Amazing Day, with an average of $650 in 70 theaters.

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

  • Judwaa 2 reached $1 million over the weekend. It very likely won’t get to $2 million.
  • Brad’s Status just managed to get to $2 million over the weekend, but that’s as far as it will go.
  • Til Death Do Us Part got to $2 million early in the weekend, while it is nearly at $3 million. It should get to that milestone, but no further.
  • Victoria and Abdul surpassed $2 million, $3 million, $4 million, and $5 million over the weekend. It hit $6 million on Monday and will continue to reach milestones for the next few weeks.
  • Battle of the Sexes made it to $7.5 million over the weekend. It is going to lose a lot of theaters in the coming weekend, but topping $10 million is still very likely.
