    Well, when a movie opens depending on how popular it is it has to stay at that theater for 2-4 weeks. After about a week or two of it being released if a theater decides to get it they only have to keep it for a week unless they want it longer.

    Movies usually stick around theaters for probably about 2-4 months depending on how popular the movie is I would say, you can usually find cheap theaters that bring movies in way after their release dates.

    How long it stays purely depends on how popular it is, as long as its making money theaters usually keep it around, even to the point where its out on video or on TV and still at the theater. Look at Star wars it was at some theaters for over a year! They even made a special movie poster to celebrate the event! Very rare though.
