Distributor Sony Pictures Classics reported a $29,332 average as a result, which is remarkably tracking the film ahead of Allen's 2011 hit "Midnight in Paris" (his highest grossing film ever). That film opened to a $28,492 average (also from 6 theaters) on its first day before taking in $99,834 per screen in its opening weekend, one of the 10 best limited debuts for a live action ever. "Jasmine" should at least match that number, and will surely beat the $87,667 average of "Spring Breakers" to give it the best per-theater-average of 2013 so far.

Check back tomorrow a full report on Woody's "Blue" hit.
