Theater Averages: Logan is Lonely on Top with $21,717

March 7th, 2017


Logan was the only film in the $10,000 club with an average of $21,717.

The best limited releases of the week was The Last Word, which earned an average $9,380 in 4 theaters. Ugetsu and The Freedom to Marry were neck-and-neck with $6,154 and $6,142. Both were playing in one theater. Tim Timmerman: Hope of America was next with an average of $4,217 in 12 theaters. Donald Cried was close behind with an average of $3,989 in two theaters. Junction 48 was also playing in two theaters earning an average of $2,758. Table 19 missed the Mendoza Line with an average of $1,841, but it was playing in nearly 900 theaters. Love and Taxes didn’t have that excuse, as it was only playing in one theater earning $1,698. Contemporary Color was even weaker with $1,451 over the weekend. However, it had a Wednesday opening and it earned $5,233 over five days.

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

  • Table 19 opened with more than $1 million, but with a theater average below the Mendoza Line, it won’t last in theaters for very long.
  • A United Kingdom reached $1 million early last week and will very likely get to $2 million before the weekend.
  • As expected, I Am Not Your Negro made it all the way to $5 million. That’s amazing for a documentary.
  • Moonlight hit $25 million over the weekend and will become the biggest hit in A24’s history.
  • Lion managed to get all the way to $45 million and $50 million is still within reach.
  • La La Land managed to hit $145 million, which puts it ahead of Kung Fu Panda 3 on the 2016 domestic chart.
  • Hidden Figures surpassed $155 million and it is just behind Star Trek Beyond for 15th place on the 2016 domestic chart.
