‘The Farewell’ Brings a Jolt to Fizzling Indie Box Office
A24’s “The Farewell” had its four-screen opening this weekend and set a new mark for the highest per screen average of 2019, bringing some good news to an indie box office that has had very little to smile about his summer.

Premiering at Sundance in January, “The Farewell” arrived in Los Angeles and New York to critical acclaim, holding a 100% Rotten Tomatoes score with 90 reviews logged. The film grossed an estimated $351,330 this weekend for an average of $87,833, hitting that target despite power outages in Manhattan that forced the AMC Lincoln Square, one of the theaters screening “The Farewell,” to close early on Saturday night. The previous top average for the year was held by “Avengers: Endgame,” which had a $76,601 average from its record $357 million wide opening in April.
