Serious Money on the Per Theater Chart

October 6th, 2009

A Serious Man showed the competition who was serious by earning first place on the per theater chart earning an average of $41,890 in six theaters. Paranormal Activity climbed into the $10,000 club with a sophomore average of $16,129 and now there's a push to get it into 1000 theaters nationwide. More Than a Game earned an average of more than $10,000, $13,067 to be precise, placing third in the process. Coco Before Chanel repeated in the $10,000 club with an average of $12,878, but it will need some strong word-of-mouth if it wants to stay they one more week.

The next best new release was well back as An American Journey pulled in $6,180 in one theater. Wake Up Sid opened with an average of $4,500 in nearly 80 theaters. Chelsea on the Rocks was right behind with $4,282 in one theater. Afterschool was also playing in one theater, but it was not as fortunate with just $2,606. Do Knot Disturb barely cracked the Mendoza Line with an average of $2,185 while Fallen Idol - The Yuri Gagarin Conspiracy opened to the south with just $2500 in two theaters for an average of $1,273.

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

  • Bright Star hit $1 million since this time last week, and it likely already hit $2 million.
  • My One and Only has made it to $2 million since this time last week.
  • Capitalism - A Love Story expand, but not quite wide, but it was able to reach $1 million, $2 million, $3 million, and $4 million over the weekend.
