That statement requires a little context: Blue Jasmine, Woody Allen’s Madoff-esque latest, opened on exactly six screens over the weekend — but it grossed $612,767, which equals a per-theater average of just over $100,000. That makes it the biggest limited release of the year, and also Woody Allen’s biggest opening to date, in terms of per screen average. User tip, if you haven’t gone yet: BYO Xanax. Cate Blanchett does not share hers.
