Lackluster continues to be the operative word. Business is down so much that last year at this time, four movies did better than this week's leader--"Hot Shots," which stars Charlie Sheen. It topped the chart for a third week, with business off only 22% from the previous week. "The Doctor," starring William Hurt, expanded from its limited run, and business shot up 30%. Orion's "Mystery Date" opened to a poor $1.9 million reception on 1,340 screens.
* Business was very brisk for the limited-scale runs of "The Commitments" and "Paris Is Burning," which has generated $787,324 in 10 days, since expanding from one theater in New York.
