LOS ANGELES - Disney's "Moana" has continued to sit pretty atop the box office for its third consecutive weekend, but Damien Chazelle's musical "La La Land" was what really had audiences singing this weekend.

Playing in only five theaters, the lively and well-reviewed "La La Land" grossed a staggering $855,000 for Lionsgate, according to studio estimates Sunday. Its $171,000 per theater average is an all-time high for a 5-theater release and for 2016 in general. Starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, "La La Land" expands to 200 locations next week.

It was business as usual among wide releases, with "Moana" in first with $18.8 million, followed by the Jennifer Aniston comedy "Office Christmas Party," which debuted to $17.5 million - a quiet moment before "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" opens next weekend.
