Why do cult comedies have such trouble in theaters?

Stephen Saito from IFC: When "Mystery Team" opened in August of last year, I wondered aloud whether the DERRICK Comedy troupe could build on their following from YouTube to lure audiences in to see their very funny comedy on the big screen. As full-capacity screenings over the weekend in Los Angeles proved, they could -- to some extent. As far as the film's theatrical run, things never quite kicked into second gear.

The story is too old to be commented.
