That being said, a lot of back-catalog films only have 2K digital transfers... it's mostly new films and a small cross-section of classic titles that have 4K digital transfers available. There's a large amount of the corpus of cinema that will never take advantage of any resolution much greater than 1080p.
Of course, having 4K sets in the wild will force digital cinema to step their game up... but that's a different case entirely.
