The Lowest Grossing Film Ever: $30 at the Box Office!

The lowest grossing film of all times earned a measly $30 at the box office. This dubious honor belongs to the movie Zyzzx Road:

That’s not a typo. I didn’t mean 30 million dollars. Or 300,000 dollars. Zyzzyx Road, released on February 25th of 2006, was released in one theater, where it played for six days and earned 30 dollars total. That would be an average of five dollars per day, although Box Office Mojo tells us that the film actually made the bulk of its money – twenty bucks – on the opening weekend.

Yeah, Sam, but they probably got in for free. Maybe by promising the theater owner to sign autographs for the 2 or 3 people who did see the movie. (I don't know what a movie ticket costs in the US so I cannot break it down into a number of paying spectators).

In any case, I wonder if they now feel better than everyone else having dared or bothered to see a movie that nobody else wanted to see. Or if they feel stupid for being the only ones in the world who have wasted their money to see it. Most likely they don't care.

Would be neat if they could form a group and have reunions with screenings. Maybe a small biannual convention with stars present. Which gives me an idea for a screenplay for another bad movie.
