The live-action film about pizza- loving amphibians who live in a sewer scored an extra impressive opening over the weekend because most of the ticket buyers were kids paying $2.50 to $3 each, compared with $5.50 to $6.50 for adult tickets. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," based on the heroes of cartoons and video games, fell behind only "Batman" and "Ghostbuster II" for the biggest box office take in a film's first three days, reports Exhibitor Relations Co. Both were early summer releases. Moviegoers, meanwhile, were still smiling on "Pretty Woman," the story of a woman transformed by a businessman from a Hollywood Boulevard prostitute into a Rodeo Drive shopper. Starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, the film finished second and collected $12.5 million at the box office. "The Hunt for Red October" descended to third place as the underwater thriller grossed $6.5 million to bring its total take to $76.6 million. Winning the best picture and best actress Oscars on March 26 helped "Driving Miss Daisy" climb 41 percent to land in fourth with a gross of $5.2 million. The film, made for $8.5 million, should pass $100 million by month's end. "My Left Foot," which picked up Oscars for best actor and best supporting actress, jumped 90 percent from a week ago. It finished ninth with $1.52 million. Italy's "Cinema Paradise," which won best foreign language film, made $344,000, up 86 percent. The comedy "Opportunity Knocks" starring Dana Carvey of "Saturday Night Live," came in fifth with $3.5 million in its debut weekend. • Lenten Organ Recital Series: Featuring Royce Young of Salina's Christ Cathedral, 12:lOto 12:30p.m., sanctuary, St. John's Lutheran Church. 302 S.
