Theater Averages: Triplets Top Trio of $10,000 Club Members

July 4th, 2018

Three Identical Strangers

Three Identical Strangers top the theater average chart with an average of $34,301 in five theaters. The only other members of the $10,000 club were wide releases, with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom earning an average of $13,581 and Incredibles 2 being relatively close behind with $10,525.

There were several other new limited releases that had a wide range of results. For example, Love, Cecil only narrowly missed the $10,000 club earning $9,331 in its one theater. Meanwhile, The Cakemaker was relatively close behind with an average of $8,346 in four theaters. Sanju was the widest limited release of the week playing in 356 theaters; it also had one of the best averages at $7,650. Custody had a mixed result with $4,947 in one theater. That’s not bad, but it won’t expand significantly after that. Likewise, This is Congo struggled with $3,690, also in one theater. Woman Walks Ahead was right behind an average of $3,432 in two theaters; however, this film was playing on VOD, so its theatrical numbers are meaningless. Finally there’s Dark River, which only managed an average of $2,123 in two theaters.

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

  • Hearts Beat Loud reached $1 million over the weekend. Its theater average is low enough that it likely won’t expand significantly beyond this point, but that won’t stop it from getting to $2 million.
  • American Animals made it to $2 million just a week after reaching $1 million. It is starting to drop at the box office, but $3 million is still a reasonable target.
  • Sanju opened with more than $2 million at the box office. However, Bollywood films tend to drop-off very quickly at the box office and lasting more than a few weeks in theaters is remarkable.
  • First Reformed hit $3 million early in the weekend, but getting to $4 million will be difficult.
  • Won’t You Be My Neighbor got to $5 million early in the weekend and was past $7.5 million by the end.
