New York City in 12K
We complain about D* getting more 4K, let skip 4,8K and go to 12K!
I could see this in 5 years or something when iptv is more widely available via US " traditional" (cable sat telco) tv providers .
But right now "most" tv providers (cable) are maxed out on the video side .
When more folks have FTTH and D3.1
I could see more 8k 12k video etc ...
Right now I think only D* and possibly E* have 4k.
I know altice north tried 4k Olympics but they had to turn off all STARZ HD channels to find the bandwidth for 1 4k channel . (Perfect example of what I was mentioning above )

it should find a way to cinemaplexes
The majority of movie theaters in the US have 2K (i.e. HD) digital projectors, not 4K. I wouldn't hold my breath for them to go beyond 4K.
Looks great in a 55 inch in 4K.
Actually, it may be easier for many to move to 8k from Hi Definition than to 4K... at least for the ones that aren’t planning on upgrading soon because by the time they need to replace their projectors 8k is what will be available...
AMC and Regal went 4K in like 2010... theaters always look to stay a step ahead. I’d imagine 8K isn’t far off for them - given digital projectors are modular and were built with 8K upgrades in mind. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 also kicked off 8K digital recording...

Yup, nothing wrong with shooting and recording in 12k (or even 8k for that matter) Down-conversions would usually look better than when filmed in their "native" formats.
For example, when DVDs started to be mastered in 2k HD (or [some] standard BDs in 4k, etc).
The few times I have gone to an AMC I really don’t see any different.
