Last Train Arrives at the Top of the Per Theater Chart

September 8th, 2010

Last Train Home earned top spot on the per theater chart with $20,418 in its lone theater over the three-day portion of the weekend. The only other film to reach the $10,000 milestone was My Dog Tulip with $11,550, also in one theater.

Of the rest of the new limited releases, Prince of Broadway was the best with $9,770 in its one theater. On the other hand, A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop was average, more or less, with an average of $5,466 in five theaters. We Are Family opened in 78 theaters, but just missed $300,000 in total for an average of $3,819. Strangely, Mesrine: Public Enemy Number One was significantly weaker than its predecessor with an average of $2,402. Had the first film failed to earn good reviews, this would have been understandable, but that was not the case here. Clear Blue Tuesday failed to top the Mendoza Line with just $1,780 in one theater, while White Wedding was even weaker with an average of $1,465 in three.

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

  • Get Low got to $4 million before the weekend and $5 million during the weekend.
  • The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo reached $10 million in the United States alone, not counting the couple million it made in Canada.
