Screen Media Films' THE VOID grossed an estimated $55,000 over a three-day weekend starting on April 7th in 31 locations based on many bookings where limited engagements per day and/or midnight shows.
THE VOID was the #1 grossing film at multiple locations including the Village East Theater in NY and at the Arena in LA. Also, the Nitehawk in Brooklyn, and the Music Box in Chicago sold out all of its midnight shows. Overall, there were sold out shows across the board in the following markets over the weekend: New York (Brooklyn, Yonkers), Chicago, Miami, Texas (El Paso, Lubbock, Dallas), Lancaster PA, Salem MA, Columbus, California (Los Angeles, Santa Ana, and San Diego).
Said Tom Yagielski, SVP Domestic Distribution at Screen Media: "Considering most of these engagements were limited to late and midnight showings we are thrilled audiences are responding so strongly to THE VOID. With sold out shows in over a dozen markets, and near full houses in many others, we are optimistic this weekend will launch THE VOID as a perennial midnight film on the indie circuit."
The film is also currently ranked #25 overall on iTunes since it's debut there on Friday. Additionally, it currently ranks as the #2 Independent Film, #2 Horror, #8 Sci-Fi & Fantasy, and #6 Thriller.
Following the weekend, the film will expand to more than 50 markets around the US including Cleveland, Richmond VA, Atlanta, Denver, Portland, Tucson, Charlotte, Buffalo, and Little Rock AR, with other engagements to follow.
