Top movies in Canada: 1981 knocks De pere down from number one
It finally happened.
The box office champion of domestic cinema, De pí¨re en flic, was knocked out of the top spot after a nine-week rule.
Ricardo Trogi's 1981, an autobiographical story about adjusting to a more affluent neighbourhood as a 10-year-old, took the number one position.
On its opening September 4 weekend, it ranked number 15 on the international charts in Canada (with $105,647), but slipped to number 17 this past weekend (with $100,540).
The sole English-language film, The Time Keeper, dropped out of the top five Canadian films.
Here are the box office results for the week of September 4 to 10.
