    I agree, but once 4k becomes the norm, we'll have more of that theatre experience back. Just give it time, my friend.

    But it still won't compete with IMAX - no home theater could...

    I guess you'd better buy yourself an Imax installation, but watch out- they're not cheap.

    I'm sorry, but it seems a bit absurd to lament not being able to see the film in IMAX. Does any home viewing compare well to a well-done theatrical presentation? If any film was a big-time experience in IMAX, it was Avatar. I still enjoyed watching It at home in 2D and even more so when I got 3D. Accept your home theater for what it is and enjoy it.

    didn't see Avatar in Imax only 3D while it was great and I got the BR ,Avatar wasn't real Imax so I don't think 1080p from 4k isn't as big a leep as Imax to 1080p pus thats almost a Animated film with so much green screen the Dark Knight imax shots looked like a 8x10 view camera image compared to a 35mm one

    I did see AVATAR in IMAX 3-D and while it was a very good presentation, it didn't come close to comparing to the *REAL* IMAX sequences in the last two DARK KNIGHT films. In fact, AVATAR in "real" (i.e., 15-perf 70mm) IMAX-3-D didn't even fill the entire IMAX screen, it was "windowboxed" with noticeable empty space on the top, bottom, left and right. I saw it in the same theater I saw both DARK KNIGHTs- the enormous, real IMAX screen at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square, and for both of those films, the IMAX sequences filled the entire huge screen in crystal-clear look-out-the-window stunning detail, while the 35mm sections filled it side-to-side while being matted top/bottom to 2.4:1.

    So what's the point of this thread? That a TV at home isn't as good as a movie theater? Is this news?

    well This is a Special case,How many feature Mil dollar Hollywood films come out in true Imax, This is not a problem with most films,this might be the last time,We all had memories of how great 70mm use to be,This topped those ,and e 35mm parts looked excellent
