There's no built-in tool to do this, but some people have made their own.

Newscreen

setgetscreenres

Link for Newscreen is broken - the setgetscreenres links works and is a great solution! –  Lester Cheung Jan 29 at 7:08

A command-line utility used by a large number of OS X enterprise administrators is SetDisplay.

There is a hint from Macworld hint that show show to do this from AppleScript. You will have to hunt around to find the csreen utility. I haven't tried this myself, so YMMV.
