It was a rush to the box office last week as Aaron Russo’s hot documentary “America: Freedom to Fascism” opened in test markets in New York, Chicago, Austin, Tampa and Kansas City. The estimated box office last week was approximately $90,000.
Russo used the test markets to evaluate audience response before spreading it across the country. The film was met with standing ovations and excellent exit polls. Russo feels that the prints could be technically improved, so he has made a decision to pull the film from theaters as of last night (Thursday). He will be upgrading the quality of the prints and releasing the film this September in time for the political season. The film will be released in many theaters across the country.
In Austin, TX the Friday evening show sold out by mid-morning. Chicago’s Landmark Century Centre sold out their Saturday evening show so quickly, they had to move it to a larger room.
