According to box office estimates, An American Carol grossed $145,000 yesterday in 1,621 theaters for a per theater average of…. $89.
As BoxOfficeMojo explains:
Theaters refers to the number of locations where a movie is playing, but it does not reflect the number of screens. One theater location, for example, may play a movie on several screens—this is a necessary distinction since print and Web references routinely and mistakenly refer to theaters as screens.
So $89 is not per screen or per showing. That is for the day, the whole day, no matter how many screens An American Carol appears upon.
$89. Eighty-nine dollars. Ochenta y nueve dólares.
For the whole day.
The closest movie theater to my house has showings at 1:00pm, 3:10pm, 5:20pm, 7:35pm, 9:45pm
You do the math.
