Per Theatre Average Sides with Sideways

October 26th, 2004

Thanks in part to Paul Giamatti's second Oscar worthy performance in as many years, Sideways easily topped the Per Theatre Charts with a $51,761 average in four theatres. Let's hope Paul Giamatti is at least nominated this year unlike what happened last year with American Splendor.

Coming in second place with $21,554 was The Machinist, which boasted its own amazing acting performance by its lead, Christian Bale. Rounding out the $10,000 club was the overall box office champ, The Grudge with a surprising $12,058 per theatre average.

Just the one milestone reached during the past week with I Huckabees reaching the $5 million mark. Its per theatre average is low enough that another large expansion is unlikely, but high enough that it should stick around in the theatres long enough to hit at least one more major milestone before its run is over.
