‘Philadelphia,’ ‘Naked’ enjoying limited success

Despite some thinning out of the Los Angeles-New York exclusives roster, the films that stayed bicoastal adjusted reasonably well to the post-holiday biz dip. While “Shadowlands” and “In the Name of the Father” were among the former exclusives branching out, others, including Fine Line’s “Naked,” stayed limited with mixed results.

The following is a list of weekend grosses for films released on an exclusive basis in New York and Los Angeles.
