AOC’s Climate Documentary Earns Only $81 Per Theater In Weak Opening Weekend

Democrat New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez faces dismal opening weekend after making “climate change” documentary aimed at promoting Green New Deal initiatives

From Daily Wire:

Director Rachel Lears is behind the documentary, titled “To the End,” which debuted over the weekend in 120 theaters. The total box office haul for opening weekend was a less-than-stellar $9,667, according to Box Office Mojo.

Lears’ previous offering, Netflix’s “Knock Down the House,” also prominently featured Ocasio-Cortez and earned high marks from critics — Rotten Tomatoes gave it a critic score of 99% fresh. Viewers were not as kind, giving the film a rating of just 11%.

“To the End” has already garnered a critic score of 83% on the film-rating site, but at the time of publication, too few audience members had voted for the viewer score to be posted.

Exhibitor Relations Co. (@ERCboxoffice) did the math on the depressing opening-weekend numbers, determining that the per-theater average was even worse than the overall box office take.

“This is it the end, my friend,” they tweeted on Monday once the numbers were in for the weekend showings. “Roadside Attractions’ documentary on climate change, TO THE END, ‘starring’ AOC, was voted out of the box office — just $9,667 in 120 theaters, $81 per. Yes, $81 per.”

“Nobody cares less about climate change than … theatergoers,” they concluded.
