Per Theater Chart: IMAX Shines Like the Son
There were a couple of other new limited releases that did rather well. Ain't Them Bodies Saints earned an average of $8,806 in three theaters. Cutie and the Boxer also played in three theaters with an average of $7,033. Spark: A Burning Man Story opened with an average of $4,683 in two theaters. Underdogs was right behind with an average of $4,681 in four theaters. Had it sold just one ticket more, it likely would have topped Spark's average. The Patience Stone was more middling with an average of $3,494 in two theaters. Inch'Allah earned $3,391 in one theater over the weekend. It did much better during its run in Canada last year. Drew: The Man Behind the Poster opened with just $1,764 in one theater.
This past week also saw milestones reached for a few Per Theater Chart alumni:
- The Spectacular Now topped $1 million late in the weekend. It should continue to expand and should have no trouble getting to at least a couple more milestones.
- Twenty Feet From Stardom reached $4 million, which is stunning for a documentary.
- Chennai Express hit $4 million late in the weekend. It did fall 60% during its sophomore stint, which is really bad compared to most limited releases. However, this is actually better than average for Bollywood releases. Even with this sharp decline, $5 million should still be obtainable.
