Ginsberg docu, ‘Fiorile’ top L.A. exclusive bows

Business was spotty for bicoastal releases last weekend. Although the exclusives roster was fairly kind to a slew of newcomers, pictures with existing runs generally reported B.O. drops from the previous weekend.

Among newcomers, First Run’s “The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg” made a nice bow at the Nuart in L.A. “Fiorile” opened OK out West, although not as OK as its earlier East Coast debut.
