Both films opened over the weekend, both in new York City, both playing in one theater, so box office totals for each weren't exactly earth-shattering; but, their per screen averages were strong.In fact, Andrew Dosunmu's Mother of George, released by Oscilloscope, had the highest per screen average of any film in release over the weekend, at $22,500. In comparison, the number 1 film in terms of gross, Insidious Chapter 2, earned a per screen average of $13,463.And Blue Caprice, released by Sundance Selects, wasn't that far behind, in the top 5 per screen averages, with $15,200.By the way, after 2 weeks, Winnie Mandela, the Jennifer Hudson biopic on the life of Winnie Mandela, has grossed over $80,000 at the box office.For those in other cities (other than New York), here are the upcoming theatrical play-dates for both Mother of George and Blue Caprice:For Mother of George:09/13/13New York, NYAngelika Film Center09/20/13Atlanta, GALandmark Midtown Art Cinema09/20/13Los Angeles, CALaemmle Royal09/20/13New York, NYAMC Empire 2509/27/13Chicago, ILSiskel Film Center09/27/13Nashville, TNBelcourt09/27/13Seattle, WALandmark - TBD10/04/13Boston, MALandmark Kendall Square Cinema10/04/13Portland, ORLiving Room Theater10/18/13Washington, DCLandmark E-Street Cinema11/08/13Denver, COLandmark - TBD11/22/13Philadelphia, PALandmark Ritz at the BourseFor Blue Caprice:9/20 Roxie Theater San Francisco CA
