In Theaters February 19, 2010

With My Name Is Khan dominating screen space, there are no new Hindi movies opening in Chicagoland this weekend. MNIK earned $2,264,983 in U.S. theaters during its opening weekend, which included an extra day because of Monday’s Presidents Day holiday. The movie had the highest per screen average with $18,875, beating Valentine’s Day‘s $17,227 per screen haul.

My Name Is Khan continues for a second week at AMC Loews Pipers Alley 4 in Chicago, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and AMC Cantera 30 in Warrenville.

If you’ve still not gotten around to seeing 3 Idiots, it’s sticking around for a ninth week at the South Barrington 30.

Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Leader (Telugu), Thamizh Padam (Tamil) and Uthara Swayamvaram (Malayalam) at the Golf Glen 5 and Chattambi Nadu (Malayalam) at Sathyam Cinemas in Downers Grove.

Opening January 15: Chance Pe Dance

One new Hindi film opens in the Chicago area on Friday, January 15, 2010. Chance Pe Dance features Shahid Kapoor as a struggling entertainer who makes ends meet as a dance teacher. Genelia D’Souza plays his love interest. Based on the trailer, Chance Pe Dance‘s costume budget must not have included money for shirts for Shahid:

Chance Pe Dance opens at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and AMC Cantera 30 in Warrenville. (The AMC theaters list the movie as “The Chance Pe Dance“). It has an official runtime of 2 hrs. 1 min.

The comedy 3 Idiots is still going strong, having earned $5,602,911 in U.S. theaters so far. It continues into its fourth week at the Golf Glen 5, South Barrington 30, Cantera 30 and AMC Loews Pipers Alley 4 in Chicago.

Last week’s new releases, Pyaar Impossible and Dulha Mil Gaya, won’t get a second week in theaters.
