Aren't the kids off in the US next week too? Expect bumper business during the week also if that is correct.

Spring breaks in the US span basically anywhere from beginning of march to end of april.. there is no uniform spring break.. or starting and ended times for the school year.
At least we can abort fetuses. Bad grammar and language last a lifetime.

When I went to see Brooklyn's Finest today, only one show of Alice in Wonderland had sold out (a mid-afternoon 2-D show). Meanwhile, Brooklyn's Finest was playing to a near-empty auditorium.

Hmm, this might be even more front-loaded that I thought.

Though not in the game, The Secret Of Kells made $40,000 in one theatre. Not bad for a small Irish movie from a first-time distributor.
