It was a record-breaking weekend for The Master, P.T. Anderson’s latest starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. The film brought in $728,745, which didn’t strike us as much of a big deal either, until we learned that it was only playing in five theaters this weekend.

As such, it set a new record for per-screen earnings: $145,949.

That’s Dirk Diggler money.
