Another Slow Weekend on the Per Theatre Charts

March 14th, 2006

For the second weekend in a row, no film was able to top the $10,000 mark. Ask the Dust came the closest with nearly $70,000 in 7 theatres for a per theatre average of $9,826.

Other new limited releases to chart in the top ten were The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things with a studio estimate of $10,000 in 2 theatres (final box office numbers should be in by the end of the week), and Duck Season with $25,000 in 6 theatres for an average of $4,110. On the other hand, Evil struggled with $2,448 in its lone theatre.

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

  • Night Watch hasn't earned the mainstream success most were hoping for, but it did top $1 million over the weekend. Look for the film to do better on the home market and it might even earn cult status here.
  • As expected, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada made it to $3 million midweek. It is shedding theatres now, but that won't stop it from hitting another milestone or two.
