As the price elasticity of demand for weekend and evening patrons is -0.40, then the demand is inelastic, and a movie theater should increase price for them to increase total revenue. As the price elasticity of demand for matinee moviegoers is -2.50, then the demand is elastic, and a movie theater should decrease price for them to increase total revenue.
