What kind of business did EOT and TTWII do?

What was the box office for TTWII and EOT when they were released in the theaters? Were they popular? I saw them both in the theaters when I was a kid but I remember the theaters for both were not real crowded. I did go to a Saturday matinee for TTWII and a week night for EOT. I don't remember about TTWII but EOT didn't seem to be in the theater for very long, mabey like a couple of weeks is all and I don't know if it played in other theaters in my town (Denver).

Elvis On Tour:
The concert film reached #13 on the Variety National Box Office Survey. In general, documentaries were very rarely box office successes.[2] However, despite costing upwards of $1.6 million to produce, most of which was Presley's $1 million fee, the film recouped its production costs after just three days in theaters.[2]

As well as being a financial success, Elvis on Tour proved to also be a critical success by winning the 1972 Golden Globe Award for Best Documentary, making it the only Elvis film to win an award of any kind.[1]

That's The Way It Is:
The concert film reached #22 on the Variety National Box Office Survey on its original theatrical release in 1970
