Yangtze is not Up the Creek on the Per Theater Chart

April 29th, 2008

The Canadian documentary, Up the Yangtze, led the way on the per theater chart this week scoring $15,851 in its lone theater. Holly was just a tiny percent behind with $15,687, also in one theater. The final resident of the $10,000 club was Roman de Gare, which earned an average of $12,742 in two theaters.

Then She Found Me opened with a solid average of $8,066 while Standard Operating Experience earned $7,054. Both have room to expand. Without the King and Tashan opened with nearly identical averages of $4,237 and $4,016 respectively, but widely different totals, as the former debuted in 1 theater and the latter in 75. Dare Not Walk Alone was the final film to finish above the Mendoza Line but still opened weakly with $3,086. A Plumm Summer opened with and average of $927 in 58 theaters, while Rogue and Deal finished off the new releases with $771 and $706 respectively.

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

  • Priceless reached its first milestone, but $1 million might be the last for the film.
  • The Counterfeiters managed to top $4 million over the weekend and $5 million is in its grasp.
  • Shine a Light hit $4 million very early in the weekend and is nearly halfway to $5 million.
