Boyhood Sundance

Audiences went out in droves to see the little indie movie "Boyhood" this weekend. 

The IFC film, which cost $2.4 million and took director Richard Linklater 12 years to makemade $359,000 upon debut.

While that may not sound like a lot, the movie only played in five movie theaters over the weekend in both New York City and Los Angeles, putting its intake per theater at $71,800.

In comparison, "Snowpiercer," another indie film we recently wrote about, performed debuted in eight theaters earning $171,187 or approximately $21,398 per theater.

The only other indie film to have a better opening weekend this year was Wes Andersen's brilliant "The Grand Budapest Hotel." That movie, starring Ralph Fiennes, took in a massive $811,166 opening weekend from four theaters. That's an average of $202,792 per screen.

"Boyhood" will expand into more theaters over the next few weeks.
