Quake cools L.A. exclu B.O.; N.Y. warms up to ‘Naked’

The Jan. 17 Northridge earthquake sent aftershocks through the exclusives roster last weekend. Biz drops in Los Angeles were the rule, and pix struggling through opening weekends generally did sub-par box office.

New York lines were longer, with a mild reprieve in the bone-chilling temps apparently encouraging some moviegoing. Fine Line’s “Naked” did particularly well in Gotham.
