Per Theater Chart: Phil Ochs has Fortunate Start

January 11th, 2011

Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune opened on top of the per theater chart with $18,211 in one theater over the weekend and $26,846 since Wednesday. This pushed Blue Valentine into second place with an average of $17,608; however, Valentine also saw its theater count balloon from 4 to 40. Another Year added one more theater, but it wasn't enough to keeps its overall box office level, as its average slipped to $12,466. The Illusionist hung on with an average of $10,996, but I think it has taken too long and it might be too late to expand significantly.

The best of the rest of the new limited releases was The Time That Remains, which performed respectably with $6,453 in one theater. No One Killed Jessica was next with an average of $4,739 in 48 theaters. Since this is not the typical Bollywood film, this average is impressive. Finally there's If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle, which opened with $2,999 in one theater.

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