Results Good Enough to make Harvey Pekar Smile

September 3rd, 2003

With no new releases making waves on the Per Theater Chart, American Splendor climbed back into first place with an average of $9,484. This despite more than doubling its theater count. I think it is safe to say that American Splendor will have some mainstream success, maybe even climbing into the top 10.

Last week's winner dropped to fourth place, but is still impressive as Thirteen increased its theater count more than 10-fold and its total box office was more than 5 times bigger.

On the opposite end of the spectrum in 106th place out of 106 films tracked was Marci X. In its second week it could only manage $208,000 at 1,200 theaters. That's an average of just $173 per theater. If you take ticket prices and the number of showings into account it works out to about one person per showing.
