Theater Averages: Cameraperson Finishes First, Not Last, with $12,760

September 13th, 2016


A trio of films reached the $10,000 club on the theater average chart this week, lead by Cameraperson with $12,760 in one theater. The Last Princess was also playing in one theater and was right behind with $11,607. The final film in the $10,000 club was Kicks with an average of $10,704 in three theaters.

It was a busy week for new limited releases, but only a couple of them did well. Dancer was the best of the rest earning an estimated $7,000 in one theater, while The Carer was the only other one above $5,000 earning $5,102, also in one theater. Come What May was close behind with an average of $4,869 in two theaters. Author: The JT LeRoy Story and Demon had nearly identical averages of $4,683 in five theaters and $4,520 in three theaters respectively. Baar Baar Dekho had the widest limited release of the week playing in just under 150 theaters earning an average of $4,194 in the process. As I Open My Eyes was less than the cost of one ticket behind with $4,189 in one theater. Other People struggled with an average of $3,083 in twelve theaters, but it was playing on Video on Demand, so this is not a surprising result. Finally we get to The Map Against the World, which avoided the Mendoza Line with an average of $2,491 in four theaters.

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

  • Operation Chromite got to $1 million just before the weekend. It won’t get any further.
  • The Innocentes hit $1 million over the weekend. It too won’t get any further.
  • Don’t Think Twice reached $3 million before the weekend and it is halfway to $4 million.
  • No Manches Frida rose to $5 million before the weekend. It won’t be long before it tops $10 million.
