It is 1969. 16 yr. old Jamie Schwartz, desperate to be a worldly adolescent, has landed at an all-boys boarding school for all the wrong reasons. Ostracized by nearly everyone, he clings to the unshakable belief that he will someday play Holden Caulfield—the main character from the book The Catcher in the Rye—on Broadway and in the movies. Jamie adapts the novel into a play to put on at school, but after a series of increasingly hostile incidents he runs away to search for the book's reclusive author, JD Salinger. On the way Deedee Gorlin, a quirky townie, picks him up. Their odyssey to find Salinger and the roller-coaster of events that follow is a journey into the meanings of friendship, sex, love and loss.

Theater Averages: Godzilla Stomps All Over the Theater Average Chart

October 19th, 2016

Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla had a number of special screenings over the weekend and its daily theater count ranged from 26 to 311. This made a huge mess of the theater average chart. I guess adding up the averages for the individual days would be the best, giving it an average of $5,271. However, even that doesn’t take into account the many theaters which only had limited showings on the single day they played the film. It’s a mess.

As for films that are a lot easier to deal with, Miss Hokusai topped that chart with an average of $12,262 in two theaters. This is another hit for GKIDS. Certain Women was right behind with an average of $12,180 in five theaters. Christine was playing in just one theater, earning $11,744. More...
