Agora Leads Crowded Field on Per Theater Chart

June 2nd, 2010

Agora opened on top of the per theater chart with an average of $16,631 in two theaters. This is enough to suggest that it has some potential to expand, but not enough to suggest that it will put a dent in its $70 million production budget. Solitary Man remained strong with an average of $14,047 in six theaters. It too should expand. The Cremaster Cycle made an appearance on the chart with $11,796 in one theater, while Micmacs was close behind with an average of $10,688 in four theaters.

(There were a few more films that earned more than $10,000 per theater, if you include Monday. These include the top three films on the overall chart, as well as Breathless.)

The only other new limited release we have numbers for is George A. Romero's Survival of the Dead, which just topped the Mendoza Line with an average of $2,188.

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

  • After a month of release, Harry Brown finally made it to $1 million. It might get to $2 million, but it will be close.
  • Kites reached $1 million in half as long, but due to the type of film it is, its chances of continuing to $2 million are slimmer.
  • Chloe hit $3 million since last week, but that's as far as it will go.
  • The Secret in Their Eyes surpassed $3 million over the weekend and should pass $4 million before long.
