Hmm...

2 people at a grotty theater with a crappy screen, uncomfortable seats, filled with rude, self-absorbed morons who think it's their private screening room = more than $21

2 people at home with their 75 inch 4k screen, surround sound, reclining Lazyboys, clean washrooms and nearby refrigerator = $21

Tough call.

And don't start on with the streaming argument... 4k streaming vs 4k disc... LOL.
That's the way I see it now. I haven't been making it to the theatre that often anymore so I can justify paying $30 for a Disc to watch at home, whereas I would have spent around the same to watch it at the theatre anyway.

Start a 4K blu-ray swapping club with your family and friends. The average cost could be a lot lower. Streaming 4K would eat too much cap.

Only if it's real 4K, not Netflix compressed 4K.

Lego Movie would look great I bet. I have the 3D for that one though. And it's not sold out. ;)
Couldn't find it when I did the search. Thanks for the heads-up.

Sorry for the noob question but is 4k/uhd also a type of bluray? So an old blue ray player can play them if the tv supports 4k? If not would something like Xbox one s play it?

Thanks in advance :)

Yes, but you need a bluray player capable to play 4K. Yes Xbox one S works fine Slightly Smiling Face

Yeah, only the XBox One S is a 4K UHD player, the PS4 is not sadly. However, all those 4K combo packs that are on sale come with a regular Blu-ray included as well. :)

Check Kijiji for a used Xbox One S, I was able to snag one very cheaply.

More like three months these days. And frankly, there are very few movies released these days that I can't wait on. As for "comparing a theater experience to at home", I guess that depends on your home theater set up, doesn't it? To each their own.
