BOX OFFICE DOWN-HOME UPSURGE

Posted on

Everyone’s a critic-city folks as well as their country comrades.The Beverly Hillbillies opened well with rural residents and garnered$7.2 million in its second week, proving that outside the majormetropolises it’s a bona fide hit. The four-hour Civil War dramaGettysburg is also packing in village patrons- and not just south ofthe Mason-Dixon line. Meanwhile, such upscale pictures as The JoyLuck Club and The Age of Innocence aren’t faring well outside urbancenters. Age, with its all-star cast, opened well in every newmarket, but it has fallen off fast outside the bigger burgs; thefour-hankie weeper Club has had slightly better luck.Weekend Gross to Weeks inGross* Top 20 Date Release
