Cinema Nova crowns new all-time box office champ

GENERAL: Cinema Nova house record for Biggest Film of All-Time claimed by THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

Wes Anderson’s critically acclaimed comedy THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL became the highest grossing film in Cinema Nova’s 22 year history on Monday July 28th 2014 when it bypassed the former record holder - Oscar winner THE KING'S SPEECH - in its 110th day of release at the Carlton art house cinema.

Natalie Miller AO, joint Managing Partner of Cinema Nova, said “We are thrilled to see such an outstanding film become the highest grossing movie to ever play at Cinema Nova. It demonstrates the film industry is alive and well. Congratulations to 20th Century Fox MD Marc Wooldridge and his team for their campaign as well as Kristian Connelly and the team at Cinema Nova”.

Marc Wooldridge, Managing Director of 20th Century Fox Film Distributors Australia, said “THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL has been warmly embraced by Australian cinema goers since its launch in April, and Cinema Nova quickly became the #1 destination in the country to see it. And now, it’s achieved the incredible milestone of being the highest grossing release of all-time at this wonderful and iconic location. We’re very, very proud to share this special achievement with the entire team at Nova who have demonstrated such an incredible commitment and passion for this film, and the cinema going experience in general”.

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL commenced its season at Cinema Nova on April 10th 2014 before breaking the house record for ‘Biggest Opening Week’ for a film by grossing over $123,000 in the first 7 days of release, besting previous record holder THE GREAT GATSBY.

Wes Anderson’s all-star comedy surpassed Tom Hooper’s multi-award winning historical drama THE KING’S SPEECH, which concluded its season with a total lifetime gross of $592,277 at Cinema Nova, and is expected to reach a final cumulative figure in excess of $600,000. To-date, over 41,400 people have seen the film at Cinema Nova across a total of 1,050 sessions.

Cinema Nova’s team transformed the Carlton venue into a tribute to the fictional alpine hotel with the assistance of famed interior decorator Megan Morton, offering patrons the opportunity to sign-in to the hotel’s Guest Book, serving themed cocktails in the ‘Grand Budapest Hotel Lobby Bar’ and baking pink-iced pastries inspired by the Mendl’s cakes that play an integral role in the film.

Wes Anderson’s THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL is currently considered a front-runner in the forthcoming awards season and is expected by prognosticators to be named amongst the nominees for Best Picture at the 2015 Academy Awards.
