‘Madeline’s Madeline’ from Oscilloscope & ’Magnolia’s Skate Kitchen’ Bow Strong in Exclusive Runs: Specialty Box Office

Two specialty releases played to good opening numbers in exclusive showings over the weekend. Sundance ’18 debut Madeline’s Madeline by Josephine Decker grossed $20,225 in the three-day from its playdate at the Quad Cinemas in New York via Oscilloscope, while fellow Sundancer Skate Kitchen by Crystal Moselle opened at IFC Center via Magnolia Pictures for a $17K in the three-day estimate.

Well Go USA launched Chinese dramedy The Island by Huang Bo in 40 locations Friday, the widest of the weekend’s new specialty releases. The Island grossed $282,500, also the highest absolute gross among the newcomers. Well Go USA also opened Erik Matti’s action-thriller, BayBust in 25 theaters, grossing $75K ($3K average).

Last weekend’s number one debut, The Miseducation of Cameron Post from FilmRise expanded to 25 runs in its second frame, grossing $108K ($4,320 average). Along With The Gods: The Last 49 Days from Well Go USA went down to 36 theaters from its launch in 48. In its second outing, the title grossed $181,500 ($5,042 average). A24 added 9 runs for Never Goin’ Back for week 2, taking in $16,718 ($1,520 average).

Sony Classics jumped Marc Turtletaub’s Puzzle to 44 theaters in its third weekend, grossing nearly $165K ($3,747 average). A24’s Eighth Grade crossed the eight-figure threshold in over a thousand runs in the wake of playing free one evening in order to skirt the R-rating restriction so that actual eighth graders could see the film.

On the doc side, Neon’s Three Identical Strangers took in over $700K, placing it within reach of $10M which it will likely cross this coming week. And Focus Features’ Won’t You Be My Neighbor? grossed $495K over the weekend, bringing its cume to $21.69M, just ahead of 2002 release, Bowling For Columbine.
