DAILY BOX OFFICE RECEIPTS aren’t posted yet for Expelled, Ben Stein’s creationist documentary, but we have an estimate of the weekend receipts from Weekend Box Office.
For Friday, May 9, through Sunday, May 11, estimated receipts from all 402 theaters showing the film were $302,000. That works out to $751 per theater for the whole weekend. If an adult ticket costs $8, that’s 94 ticket sales per theater — for the three busiest days of the week.
The weekend before this, when the film was showing at 656 theaters, the total gross receipts were $678,304, or $1,034 per theater.
