Square is Hip on the Per Theater Chart

April 13th, 2010

No film earned more than $10,000 on the per theater chart, but The Square came the closest with an average of $8,546 in two theaters. Meanwhile, When You're Strange: A Film About The Doors was right behind with an average of $8,354 in eight theaters. That's enough to suggest that other theater owners will be willing to book these films in the coming weeks.

The next best new limited release was well behind. Women Without Men debuted with an average of $4,801 in three theaters. La Mission struggled with just under $50,000 in 15 theaters for an average of $3,270. After Life earned close to $60,000, but that was in more than 40 theaters. Its average was just $1,462. Valley of the Hearts Delight was even weaker, earning an average of just $1,291 in four theaters.

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

  • Chloe topped $2 million just before the weekend and it should get to $3 million before too long.
  • The Runaways also made it to $2 million before the weekend and it is already halfway to $3 million.
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the third movie to make it to $2 million since last week. So far the film has made roughly $4 million in the "Domestic" market, including its previous run in Canada.
