Some good news for Meryl Streep and The Iron Lady.  First, the box office for the film which opened December 30 was terrific.  It grossed $280,409 in four theatres (in NY and LA) for an amazing total of $70,102 per screen.  Not surprising, the film skewed female and older.  54% of the attendees were women and 72% were over 35.  The movie will expand further of January 13.

The other good news is that Berlin will show her some love on Valentines Day.  She will receive an Honorary Golden Bear on February 14 and The Iron Lady will be screened.  They will also screen several other of her films including: Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice, Out of Africa, The Bridges of Madison County and A Prairie Home Companion
