Fahrenheit 9/11 is breaking records

By On

This from the movie revenue watch website Box Office MoJo: “In terms of raw dollars, Fahrenheit is actually the biggest opening ever for a movie playing at less than 1,000 theaters, topping Rocky III’s $12.4 million at 939 venues.” That includes all movies, not just documentaries. It has grossed over $35 million as of today at only 868 theaters. Do the math. Those who showed it made good profits.

Despite theater chains choosing to not show the film (political pressure?) Americans want to see it. Of almost 4,000 available theaters in the USA, only about 900 are showing the film. Until yesterday it was not being shown in Bellingham because Regal withheld it. It appears they choose to forgo the profits and not show it.

See June 30 post for local viewing information.
