MAOW Weekend 2 Numbers  
From indieWIRE:

Other notable holdovers included Richard Linklater’s “Me and Orson Welles” - the DIY release of which was profiled in indieWIRE earlier this week. On 5 screens (up one from last weekend), the film held on decently after its promising debut, grossing $40,745 and averaging $8,149. That gave the Zac Efron-Claire Danes period film a $150,198 total after ten days.

I'm so sorry C, but what does this mean? I feel like I understand your breakdowns. I just see numbers and the word 'screens'. :/

basically it made $41,000 at five different theater locations.

that's a 36% drop from last weekend which isn't too bad since it was at basically the same number of theaters.

oddly enough, it only expanded to one more theater than last week.

there was a thr or variety (can't remember which?) article jeezbee pointed out to me that said because of how well the blind side and even new moon (to a degree) continue to do, theater owners were hesitant to give up space to other movies. this may be why maow didn't expand as they originally said it would.

next week boxofficemojo says it should expand to 40+ theaters. hopefully that will get it near enough to everybody.

eta: i hope this helps, whenever you finally get the comment notification, lulz lj.

Oh, see I was wondering what was up with the 5 theaters commentary. Granted that's good for those films mentioned (The Blind Side/New Moon) if it's holding back MAOW from getting screen placement of course I'd rather it didn't...

I'm looking forward to an expansion- it's a film that deserves to be seen & enjoyed.

It does help, thank you. :)
