Elasticity of demand , Microeconomics

The Bushman Cinema is the only movie theatre located in the medium-size country town of Sleepy Hollow.  The owner wants to charge an admission fee of $10 per seat and past experience suggests that at this price the theatre will be two-thirds full. An economist visiting the town tells the owner that he thinks demand is linear (represented by a straight-line) and that the elasticity of demand  is -0.78. Should the owner raise the price, lower the price or leave it unchanged if she wants to maximise revenue?  Give reasons for your answer.
