‘Savage Nights’ high in Gotham, L.A. amid B.O. dip

The trend was down for the exclusives roster last weekend, with only one pic bucking the southward trend: Gramercy’s “Savage Nights” was up by a small margin in its sophomore week at the Angelika in New York.

“Savage” also did well in its debut at the Laemmle Sunset 5 on the West Coast , less so at the Samuel Goldwyn Pavilion. Sony Pictures Classics’ “Belle Epoque” had a strong L.A. opening and held tough in New York.
