Per Theater Chart: Session In, New Releases Out

October 30th, 2012

The Sessions was the only film to top $10,000 on the per theater chart with an average of $10,868 in 20 theaters. Earning some measure of mainstream success is very likely at this point.

The best new limited release was The Loneliest Planet, which earned a respectable average of $7,845 in two theaters. Orchestra of Exiles was relatively close behind with $6,719 in its lone theater. The Other Son was playing in too many theaters and that hurt its average, which was only $3,066. Pusher bombed with an average of just $360 in 14 theaters, while Bad Blood... The Hunger was even worse with an average of $187 in ten.

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

  • Searching for Sugar Man got to $2 million. $3 million isn't entirely out of the question.
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower surpassed $10 million over the weekend and getting to $15 million remains a strong possibility.
  • The Master got to $15 million over the weekend, but getting to $20 million is probably asking too much.
