Orion Flyin’

Orion Pictures set a company record last week by occupying 3,651 of the nation’s 23,689 screens with “Dances With Wolves” and three other features bearing the Orion imprimatur.

While it is the biggest Orion spread ever, company has a long way to go to overtake Universal’s all-time high, set in 1989, when eight concurrent releases were on 6,107 screens across the nation.

Orion reached its peak with only four films. Last week “Dances” was out with 1,304 prints, “Mermaids” with 1,099, “Eve Of Destruction” with 987 and “Alice” with 261.

Universal established its mark with “Born On The Fourth Of July,” “Back To The Future Part II,” “Always,” “The Wizard,” “Dad,” “Parenthood,” “Sea Of Love” and “Uncle Buck.”
