‘Maps’ charts solid bow

Fox Searchlight’s “Star Maps” found its way to a solid midweek opening Wednesday, grossing $12,202 in five L.A. and New York locations.

Not surprisingly, Miguel Arteta’s L.A.-set seriocomedy did its best business in Southern California, taking in a stellar $4,938 at the Laemmle Sunset in West Hollywood. It also did a surprisingly sturdy $1,250 at Edwards’ South Coast Village in Costa Mesa.

In New York, the picture picked up $2,303 at City Cinemas’ Angelika downtown and $1,779 at Cineplex Odeon’s Upper West Side 62nd and Broadway.

“Star Maps,” produced by Arteta and Matthew Greenfield, chronicles the tribulations of a young male Chicano prostitute. It premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where Fox Searchlight paid a reported $2.5 million for worldwide rights.

The film expands to more L.A. locations on Aug. 1.
