Flowers won't go Broke

August 9th, 2005

There was a very tight race atop the Per Theatre Charts this weekend with Broken Flowers finishing just ahead of 2046. The former film earned $780,000 in 27 theatres for a $28,904 per theatre average while the latter made $113,000 in four theatres for a average of $28,269. Last week's winner, The Aristocrats took a tumble losing 56% of its per theatre average falling to third place with $26,609. Rounding out the $10,000 club was Junebug, which just snagged a spot with a $10,677 per theatre average.

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

  • Heights has already peaked at the box office and is shedding theatres, but that didn't stop it from hitting $1 million over the weekend.
  • Happy Endings has also peaked at the box office, but it also reached $1 million over the weekend.
  • Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room is just wrapping up its run at the moment, but it did last long enough to make it to $4 million.
  • Lastly we have March of the Penguins, which is doing so well it's being tracked on the regular weekend box office reports. It topped $25 million over the weekend and is far from done.
