This weekend, the title grossed $700K in 375 theaters (an average of $1,867) bringing its cume to $9.13M.

“It’s a wonderful feel-good movie with great music, killer performances and it’s a bit of an antidote to what’s going on in culture right now.” Sundance favorite Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

, the latest doc from Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom), had a solid bow in 29 locations Friday to Sunday.

The pic, which bowed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, will hit theaters, VOD and digital in the fall.

Set during the course of one evening in the Reynolds family home in suburban Connecticut, the plot centers on Clara Reynolds who, fed up with constant ribbing from her self-absorbed showbiz family, finds solace in and guidance from the supernatural force she believes is haunting her.

Clients, colleagues and participants at the Toronto International Film Festival that are interested in setting a meeting, please email Josh Blank. Orion Classics has acquired North American and Latin American rights to Clara’s Ghost, a drama directed by Bridey Elliott in her feature helming debut.

It’s a family affair: Elliott also stars with sister Abby Elliott, dad Chris Elliott, Isidora Goreshter, Haley Joel Osment and mom Paula Niedert Elliott.

It grossed 0K for a ,168 per theater average.

Most documentaries would welcome such a debut in far fewer theaters, though Focus Features took the doc about the iconic children television personality, Fred Rogers (aka Mister Rogers) to multiple major markets in its launch.

Starring Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons as a father-daughter duo who bond creating music, the film is poised to show its box office chops next weekend for Father’s Day.
