‘Grandma’ Has One of The Year’s Best Limited Debuts at the Box Office

'Grandma' Has One of The Year's Best Limited Debuts at the Box Office

The road to what we hope will be Lily Tomlin’s first Oscar nomination since 1975 got a boost this weekend as her “Grandma” opened in 4 theaters and grossed a very strong $115,540 for a $28,885 average.

It’s a very good number — but the next few weekends will be the true test of whether the Sony Pictures Classics release can be a true indie breakout, which is the kind of thing that’s necessary for a film this small to compete against the heavy hitters come Oscar time. It was also a bit risky to avoid the fall festival circuit and put “Grandma” out now during the not-so-friendly (at least in terms of awards season) month of August. So far, so good — but make sure you go see “Grandma” when it comes to your city in the coming weeks

Here’s a chart of the film’s upcoming releases. It’s currently only screening in New York and Los Angeles.
