Red Riding in the Black on the Per Theater Chart

February 10th, 2010

The The Red Riding Trilogy opened on top of the per theater chart with $14,526 in one theater, but that was all three shows for one ticket. On the one hand, the higher ticket price would help its average. On the other hand, the long running time is a large impediment. Ajami opened in second place with an average of $11,931 while Terribly Happy was just behind with $11,650. The overall box office leader, Dear John, was the final film to reach the $10,000 mark with an average of $10,262.

There were not many other new limited releases and none came close to the $10,000 mark. The Korean opened with $4,002 in one theater. Both District B13: Ultimatum and Frozen missed the Mendoza Line with averages of just $1,319 and $1,240.

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

  • To Save a Life had another sharp drop-off, but it still managed to top $3 million over the weekend. However, at this pace, $4 million is unlikely.
  • Crazy Heart expanded further and had its best weekend in its box office run so far. This helped it reach $10 million over the weekend, while $15 million by this time next week is possible.
