While audiences were not too excited about the new wide releases, Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment banner had big crowds in limited release for its teen drama “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”

The film took in $244,000 in four locations for a strong average of $61,000 a theater. That compares to meager averages ranging from $3,960 to $4,762 a theater for “Trouble with the Curve,” “House at the End of the Street” and “End of Watch,” which all played in about 3,000 cinemas.

“Perks” features “Harry Potter” co-star Emma Watson alongside Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller in the story of a troubled high school freshman taken in by a clique of senior misfits.
