Standing room only. Literally.
In another surprising debut, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, amassed $365,787 at only four New York and Los Angeles theaters — or $91,447 per theater, the highest-ever average for a documentary. (By contrast, X3 averaged $32,554 per screen.)
“An Inconvenient Truth” opens this weekend in Seattle, at Pacific Place and the Guild 45th. Every American should see this movie, and a big opening weekend is crucial to securing it wider release. So please, drop whatever you have planned and go see this movie this weekend. It could be the most important movie you ever see.
