‘Hare Krishna’ Surpasses Box Office Expectations!
Hare Krishna: The Mantra, The Movement and The Swami Who Started It All, which focuses on the life of Srila Prabhupada, who in the 1960s tapped the counter-culture in America, igniting the Hare Krishna movement in this country, had an impressive start in a single New York location. The feature grossed $21,473 Friday to Sunday.
Abramorama pointed out Sunday that the feature performed despite not receiving a New York Times review. “It exceeded our projections, indicating that it reached beyond the Hare Krishna community,” explained Abramorama’s Richard Abramowitz Sunday. The title will next head to L.A. on June 23 as well as other cities around the country. Moving forward, the feature will have a mix of one-night screenings and traditional runs.
