Box Office: Rams does well, with feminists and returned terrorists following on

Numbers may be cruddy but cinemagoers have solid local options to whet their tastes for community.

To our delight, Rams is top of the ladder in its second week, with $673k over the weekend off 294 screens. It has now made $2.21m. It’s even on more than one screen in many of its 244 screens. This is true multiplex territory.

Idiot Prayer – Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace is on 68 screens in its first week and made $89k. A Trafalgar Releasing program, it came out first online and has a limited number of screenings in a solid number of screens. In other words, it’s clumping together the fans to watch a show they already know but on a big screen.
