LOS ANGELES — A movie theater in Los Angeles was closed early Tuesday because the box office is underperforming, causing some people to take to social media to share their displeasure.
Lincoln Square Theater said Tuesday that it had to cancel screenings at 7 p.m. because of the movie, Wonder Woman, which opened Tuesday.
The theater had been booked until 2 a.m., but had to close at 7:30 p.s.m, said a spokeswoman, Michelle Geddes.
The theater, which was the only one of its kind in Los Altos, was forced to close the night of the film’s release because of its underperformance, said an employee, who declined to be identified.
The film’s opening weekend grosses have been a mixed bag.
The latest figures released Tuesday show it at $42.7 million.
That is roughly the same as last weekend’s box office of $46.4 million.
The film’s production company, Warner Bros. and its distributor, DC Entertainment, said it had a “very strong” performance.
The director, Patty Jenkins, is writing and producing the movie with Amy Adams and Gal Gadot.
The title of the Wonder Woman movie is inspired by the Greek goddess Diana and her warrior alter-ego, Wonder Man.
The movie stars Chris Pine as a hero and Robin Wright as a woman.
