Missed this last week... but better late than never.

On the weekend of May 20th, 4 indie films with black people in central roles, in front of and/or behind the camera, opened in a limited number of USA theaters - Cost of A Soul, Video Girl, 35 And Ticking, and the documentary Louder Than A Bomb.

So, how did each film do? Well, I've only been able to get data on 35 And Ticking, and Louder Than A Bomb via BoxOfficeMojo.com, which states that the the latter opened on 1 screen and managed $3,321 in ticket sales, while the former did a lot better, opening on 6 screens and pulling in $29,775 on opening weekend. Not great numbers for either, but the exposure received from their short theatrical runs might help in ancillary markets.

No word on how Cost of A Soul and Video Girl did. I've asked around, but no replies... yet.

I'm also not sure if any of the 4 films even played for a second week. There's no indication of that. But if you're involved with any of them and you've got the info we need, feel free to contact me directly, or leave a comment with the data.

I did notice that the 35 & Ticking folks set up a page, asking folks to request that the film come to their city. Click HERE if you're interested.

Anyone manage to see any of these films, and if so, your thoughts?

    Video Girl was a movie I wanted to see more so for the support and to see how it would be handled from Meagan's perspective as a produced and actor.

    I know it was playing at a theater in New York on 42nd street. Unfortunately it was in the theater just for a week. I'm hoping it will come back to another location.

    I just saw Restless City and anxiously look forward to seeing Viva Riva. I'm proud that there are people creating content on their own. Hopefully it will continue to snowball and inspire others.
