For many Americans, the passing of Thanksgiving means it's time to buckle down on Holiday shopping—but for cinemaphiles it's time to go to the movies. As studios seek to capitalize on the availability of audiences during the holidays and to get their films released, at least in limited distribution, in time to be eligible for the Academy Awards (nominations for which are due Jan. 3, according to the Los Angeles Times), movie theaters tend to fill up with some of the most Oscar-friendly fare of the whole year.

For Broadway producers, Thanksgiving brought some extra trimmings this year. According to figures from the Broadway League, a dozen Broadway shows topped $1 million at the box office for the week ending Nov. 25 — the first time that's happened all year. Perennial musical hits led the list: "Wicked" ($2.3 million), "The Lion King" ($2.1 million), "The Book of Mormon" ($1.8 million), and "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" ($1.78 million). The fifth slot went to the just-opened revival "Annie," which took a stroll down Easy Street by selling $1.5 million in tickets, 105 percent of the show's potential gross and a house record for the Palace Theatre. (Premium ticket charges spiked the average ticket price to $116, from $89 the week before.)
