Ben Cantor gave up a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a singer/ songwriter, and settled instead for a pleasant albeit less-fulfilling life as a coffee shop barista and family man. When circumstances offer him a second chance to realize his dream, he must confront how far he is willing to go in order to get what he wants.

Per Theater Chart: Imitation Remains Real

December 10th, 2014

The Imitation Game poster

The Imitation Game remained in first place on the per theater chart with an average of $48,658 in 8 theaters over the weekend. It also reached $1 million in the process, barely. The best new release of the week was Wild with an average of $28,896 in 21 theaters. This film will hit major milestones very soon. She's Beautiful When She's Angry just managed to earn a spot in the $10,000 club with $10,505 in one theater. Meanwhile, Zero Motivation just missed the $10,000 club with $9,427 in one theater. However, it was a Wednesday release and it earned $13,145 over five days. Had it opened on Friday instead, it very likely would have reached the $10,000 club.
