‘Rbg’ Rules Limited-Release Newcomers; ‘Disobedience’ & ‘Let The Sunshine In’ Solid in Expansion: Specialty Box Office

Updated at 10:55Am Pt with more numbers and analysis. Magnolia and Participant’s Sundance documentary Rbg opened in 34 locations Friday with momentum behind it and it delivered a solid start.

Directed by Julie Cohen and Betsy West, the feature spotlighting U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg grossed 560,000, or $16,471 per location, making it one of the top non-fiction releases of the year. The headway was all the more impressive given the long shadow of The Avengers.

Music Box Films opened The Guardians in a single location, grossing $7,199 over the weekend, while French-Dutch crime-drama Racer And the Jailbird bowed in two theaters, taking in $2,222. Bleecker Street’s Disobedience by Sebastián Lelio continued to lure audiences in a second-week expansion, grossing $310,272 from 31 runs, averaging $10K. Sundance Selects’ Let The Sunshine In by Claire Denis also flexed muscle in its second weekend, taking in $66,754 in seven locations.
