    By the way, a 38" 4K screen has a 100 pixel per inch density. A current leader (going off Wikipedia) in PPI for smartphones is at 806. Sharp's VR display is at over 1000 PPI. I think Steve Yedlin will be horribly disappointed as resolution numbers will b climbing up and up.

    At the moment, these are incredibly expensive, well over $1M for a cinema size screen. Samsung just put one up in South Korea as a proof of concept but even that is "only" 30' wide, much smaller than a 65'-70' movie screen.

    PS. Canon has been exhibiting its 8K projector, which is a combination of four 4K projectors, each responsible for a quarter of the screen, for a couple of years now. From the economic perspective, that would be the next step for the ultra high end theater.
