 Halfbakery: Variable Ticket Pricing
That would be a small price for some fans to pay to be able to say they saw the film on opening night, and it would weed out the more patient viewers.
This could be integrated with the aforementioned assigned seating plan (graduated pricing could be introduced here as well; the better the seat, the higher the price), and lines would be all but eliminated with no loss of profit to the distributor.
Furthermore, by offering these different price scales, variety would improve because low-budget and foreign films which couldn't normally compete with the higher-profile releases filling the multiplexes should draw large enough audiences to keep the host theaters happy, since all they're interested in is concession sales anyway.

 Should We Pay the Same Price for All Movies?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
While the authors recognize obstacles to variable pricing based on individual movies, they argue that premiums for event movies, on weekends and holidays and during the summer do not raise similar obstacles.
According to the study, the two primary forces that keep exhibitors from adopting variable pricing are distributors' pressures to maintain uniform pricing and concerns that variable pricing would antagonize moviegoers and keep them at home.
Distributors tend to prefer uniform pricing because of the importance of the opening weekend to the commercial success of the movie and concerns that variable pricing would create problems with producers and directors.

 Tiered (Variable) Pricing Compromise?
The second, is that any tiered pricing structure would constitute a new registry service that would have go through the funnel and potentially be referred to a national competition authority.
The community is also skeptical of the funnel process given its lack of a track record, and there is a general lack of trust evident in many of the comments received for the registry not to abuse its sole source position given the proposed preferential renewal terms.
The first is that tiered pricing provides the registry with the ability to allocate names in an equitable, non-discriminatory fashion, to ensure that the domain names are being put to the best use.

 Petition against iTunes Price Increases / Variable Pricing Petition
As users of legitimately purchased music, we now believe the very concept of variable pricing is another way to penalise us for choosing to reward artists for their creativity.
We believe the demand for variable pricing is simply another way for the Record Labels to rob users of their liberties whilst at the same time filling the labels pockets with additional cash.
We believe that the 99-cent per track pricing on iTunes is the correct pricing for all songs [as has been clearly proven thus far], and that labels will not, despite their promises, lower prices below their current levels, simply "marking up" content that they believe is now more valuable than it was before.

 iTMS Variable Pricing at The Apple Blog
The only advantage variable pricing has is on crappy music being cheaper and popular songs priced over a dollar.
After years and years of price gouging by the record labels, when CD prices should have fallen well under $10 a CD, people are rejoicing in the fact they can actually afford to buy songs they want.
If the price were to go back up to over a dollar per track people would leave iTMS by the droves, reinstall their Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Software and start filling their iPods with free music.

 Digital Audio Insider
The 99-cent download is still the standard within the US, but as previously noted here, there's a fair amount of variation in the default iTunes price between different countries.
In this post, Gans postulates that Apple is engaging in a form of international price discrimination, generally charging more in countries with higher GDP rates, with the major exception of the US.
Given that Apple recently held the line against variable per-song pricing -- which would probably result in higher prices for the most-recent hits -- it seems far more likely that Apple is happy to essentially break even on the sales of iTunes downloads.

 SSRN-Variable Ticket Pricing in Major League Baseball by Daniel Rascher, Chad McEvoy, Mark Nagel, Matthew Brown
Recently, however, numerous sport organizations have implemented variable ticket pricing in an effort to maximize revenues.
In Major League Baseball, variable pricing results in ticket price increases or decreases depending on factors such as quality of the opponent, day of the week, month of the year, and for special events such as opening day, Memorial Day and Independence Day (July 4).
Using censored regression and elasticity analysis, this paper demonstrates that variable pricing would have yielded approximately $590,000 per year in additional ticket revenue for each Major League team in 1996, ceteris paribus.
