I'm not sure how Cats' OW is considered poor by the media, most films would kill for that sort of OW.

$32.1m at of Monday (around £24.8m), which means around a £4m Monday. Pretty big. 
 

Cinemas are closed today but it should be over £40m by Sunday.

The Cats UK opening is actually really good. Don’t forget it had no previews to boost grosses and opened against Star Wars.

It did not open against Star Wars.
 

It opened against Gangster Squad and Texas Chainsaw.

Whats les mis got to do with Cats?

 

£3.4m is still a great opening for ANY film.

Both classic West end shows turned in to musical films. So pretty comparable to me.

You are missing the point Schumacher. Its like saying Star Wars flopped this weekend because it only grossed half of what Endgame opened to. It is still a success.

 

News outlets are reporting that Cats is doing badly in the UK when it is simply untrue.

And Cats was in tiny rooms. It was still #3 on Monday and has more showtimes at my local than the new openers, Frozen and Jumanji this week so it might do decently.

OK, let me try a different track. It's still opened under The Greatest Showman by £1m, which was against week 2 of TLJ and the opening of Jumanji, and I remember that only having small rooms too.

TBF The Greatest Showman opened on Boxing Day so had a 6 day opening.

Vast majority of cinemas are closed on Christmas day. If any cinemas are open in Asian populated areas, then not surprising that Asian films succeed because they do not celebrate Christmas.

All chain cinemas are closed for the full day. Must be a handful of small independent ones.

 

Odeon, a big chain, tried opening in 2016 I think, and never bothered again.

Some of the big chain cinemas were still open in London. The Odeon and Cineworld in Leicester Square we’re both open, and I noticed a few other Odeon’s were open around central London. North of that though you’d definitely be struggling to find any that stayed open.

 

I find it baffling that it’s such a big day for cinemas in the US, I love going to the cinema, but no way would I go on Christmas Day.

I think the infrastructure of no public transport on Christmas Day makes it very difficult for cinemas to justify being open unless it's in a specific area.
