Theater Averages: Split Separates Itself from the Pack with $13,170

January 25th, 2017


The overall number one film, Split, was also the only film in the $10,000 club, earning an average of $13,170. The closest competition was Tanpopo, which earned $7,677 in one theater during its 13th week of re-release.

Only one of the other new limited releases even came close to the $10,000 mark. That film was The Red Turtle, which earned an average of $7,003 in three theaters. No other film came close to the $10,000 mark; in fact, the other three we have numbers for all missed the Mendoza Line. The Sunshine Makers came the closest with $1,874 in its lone theater. The Resurrection of Gavin Stone really struggled with an average of $1,356 in 890 theaters. Granted, it was playing in 890 theaters, which is a lot, but it is not enough of an excuse. My Father, Die was last with an average of $323 in ten theaters.

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

  • 20th Century Women reached $1 million early in the weekend and $2 million by the end of the weekend.
  • Silence topped $4 million before the weekend and $5 million over the weekend. It should get to $6 million relatively soon, but that’s likely as far as it will go.
  • Lion hit $15 million over the weekend and it is well on its way to $20 million.
  • Moonlight also topped $15 million, but it did so before the weekend. It also has a shot at $20 million, but only if its Oscar Nominations help boost its box office numbers over the coming weeks.
  • Hidden Figures reached $80 million over the weekend and by the end was ahead of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on the yearly chart.
  • Likewise, La La Land rose above $85 million over the weekend and with its record-tying performance at the Oscar Nominations, it has a real shot at $100 million this weekend.
