Some people are never satisfied

IFC and The Weinstein Company opened up WORDPLAY in two theatres in NY (each theatres devoted 2 screens to the film). The film only generated $32,847 ($16,400 per theatre). If a film focused on the NY Times crossword puzzle doesn’t really work in NY, where will it perform?

I dunno, even if you divide by 4 instead of 2, $8000+ is a pretty darn good per-screen average. Especially on a summer weekend with 90+ degree weather.
