On Saturday, the $3 ticket offer draws huge crowds to cinemas across the United States on National Cinema Day. Films with bad word-of-mouth propaganda also collected excellently due to the offer.
First show on day one:
The film raised almost $11,000 on Saturday, almost equaling the first day’s earnings despite the worst word of mouth and reviews.
The film performed poorly, raising about $900 on its second Friday, but bounced nearly three times on Saturday, raising about $2,500.
Ranga Ranga Vaibhavanga:
This family entertainer opened to mixed reviews and raised around $36,000 on its first day, including premieres. But on Saturday alone, it raised more than $52,000.
The film grossed around $98,000 on its first day of premieres and around $82,000 on its fourth Saturday, showing strong word of mouth and audience interest even several weeks after its release. And of course there’s a $3 deal.
The film grossed around $11,000 on its fifth Friday, while rising to $28,000 on Saturday.
The total number of Telugu films on National Cinema Day in the US is estimated at around 60,000 and the total collections gross around US$180,000 which is simply phenomenal.
Indian audiences will also get such an offer on September 16th when all cinemas in Inda will release movies for only Rs. 75. It would be interesting to see how many visitors the offer will attract in India.
