"The Visitor" topped Fox Searchlight's doc "Young@Heart," also on four screens, which made an estimated $52,312 for an estimated $13,000 per screen. Since debuting on Wednesday, the 2007 Los Angeles Film Festival hit has earned more than $63,000. An English-language version of Sony Pictures Classics' "Persepolis" opened quietly over the weekend. On 136 screens it made just $81,297 according to an SPC estimate, for an average of only $598. So far, the combined grosses for both versions of the film are at more than $4.3 million.
