Theater Averages: Never Really Here Arrives on the Top

April 11th, 2018

You Were Never Really Here

You Were Never Really Here was the clear winner on the theater average chart earning over $130,000 in just three theaters for an average of $44,276. This isn’t the best theater average for a film released in 2018, but it is in the top five. The overall number one film, A Quiet Place, was next with an average of $14,311. The final film in the $10,000 club is Lean on Pete, which earned an average of $11,744 in four theaters.

The best of the rest of the new limited releases was The Endless, which earned $9,083 in its one theater. Where is Kyra? also did well with $6,101, also in one theater. Pandas was playing in 33 theaters and earned an average of $4,816. Meanwhile, The Heart of Nuba was right behind with $4,016 in one theater. ACORN and the Firestorm was the final film we have numbers for. It managed $2,621 in a single theater.

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

  • Baaghi 2 hit $1 million over the weekend. However, Bollywood films tend to have short legs, so this is as far as it will go.
  • The Death of Stalin got to $4 million before the weekend and $5 million over the weekend. It will likely start losing theaters going forward, but it is not entirely done earning milestones.
  • Isle of Dogs managed to get all of the way to $6 million after just two weeks of release. It will keep expanding for the next couple of weeks.
