If you have the money for an entertainment room you can probably afford a large screen like this...

Panasonic loves to build these things that they know will be purchased by a handful of customers, mostly for large sports arenas or similar type of venues.

And what is really dumb is right now there is little if any true 4k content; it is just 1080p upscaled.

I work for an AV/IT company, and we're not recommending 4K TVs yet due to the cost and lack of 4k content.

It's terrible when the scales fall from one's eyes, and the naked truth is revealed for what it is - naked (and b*tt ugly, to boot).
