‘Arctic’ Takes Lead On A Cold Weekend; Oscar Nominee ‘Never Look Away’ Has Solid Week-Two Hold: Specialty Box Office

It’s a bit of a forgettable weekend on the specialty side, though not as drastic as the mainstream retreat from multiplexes. Numbers were mostly lackluster all around, but Sony Classics’ second-weekend holdover, Never Look Away, took bragging rights for the best per-theater average for the weekend.

The Best Foreign Language Oscar nominated feature by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck grossed $19,033 at its exclusive engagement at the Paris Theater in New York. Bleecker Street’s Arctic bowed in four theaters for $56,463, averaging $14,116. And Bollywood’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga had the widest open by far among the specialties with 193 runs. It grossed $600K for a $3,109 PTA.

One notable feat for the specialty crowd as another Sundance Film Festival passes into memory is the performance of Cannes Palme d’Or winner, Shoplifters. Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s drama spent its 11th outing in North American theaters in an impressive 140 theaters, grossing $148K for a $1,057 PTA. It has now cumed $2.76M. This is Magnolia Pictures second Palme release in a row. Last year, it put out The Square from Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund, and the dark satire cumed $1.5M at the domestic box office.
