On Just 7 Screens, The Kids Are All Right Is a Blockbuster

The Kids Are All Right, a film where Julianne Moore plays a character who has sexual relations with Annette Bening, took home $505,000 in its opening weekend. That might not sound like a lot, but remember, it played in just seven theaters, which means it averaged $72,143 per screen.

By comparison, Toy Story 3 has grossed $340,200,000 so far, but it played in over 4,000 theaters, averaging a still impressive — but not as impressive $27,385 per screen.
