DREAMGIRLS BOX OFFICE NUMBERS ARE OUT!

THE MOVIE HAS BEEN RELEGATED TO ONLY A FEW THEATRES!

The weekly box office for this week is out and Dreamgirls does extremely well despite coming in at #7. The key is the amount the movie is making per showing. More than $10,000 and that’s the second highest per theatre average. The problem is ‘Dreamgirls’ like most African American releases has been relegated to only a hand full of theatres (852) as opposed to a mainstream release like ‘Night at the Museum’ which has 3600 theatres.
