This paper partially originates from chapter 1 of my 2002 Harvard University dissertation, and I am particularly grateful to Ariel Pakes for his guidance and support in the early stages of this paper. I thank three anonymous referees for many useful suggestions, and Susan Athey, Pat Bajari, Lanier Benkard, Tim Bresnahan, Peter Davis, Mike Mazzeo, Aviv Nevo, Peter Reiss, Katja Seim, and seminar participants at the Society of Economic Dynamics 2003 annual meeting in Paris, the Econometric Society 2004 Winter meeting in San Diego, UW Madison, and the University of Tokyo for useful comments on earlier drafts. I thank Oren Rigbi for superb research assistance, Jeff Blake (Sony Pictures), Ron Kastner (Goldheart Pictures), and Terry Moriarty (Hoytz Cinemas) for insightful conversations, and ACNielsen EDI and Exhibitor Relations Inc. for helping me obtain important portions of the data.
