‘Nowhere’ fast, in first at exclusives

In a weekend when most ticket-buyers were presumably spending dough on their mothers instead of on movies, Fine Line’s “Nowhere” took the top spot in another slow weekend for the New York-Los Angeles exclusive box office roster.

The Gregg Araki-helmed pic bowed to $27,354 at single situations in Gotham and L.A.

Auds in two theaters on each coast contributed $20,114 to the cause of Miramax’s “Children of the Revolution,” which took the second spot on the exclusive list.

Last week’s top-spot holder, Sony Classics’ “Broken English,” slipped two spots this week to No. 3, taking in $18,279 in five theaters in L.A. and New York — a 33% drop from the week before.

The fourth spot on the exclusive list is held by the Wallace Shawn talker “Designated Mourner,” which garnered $17,196 in two Gotham sites.
