Very interesting database that provides full breakdown of workflow for listed feature films including :

Aquisition format ... film stock ... cameras ... lenses ... print ... distribution ... VFX ... editing, etc.

See: www.ShotOnWhat.com

Example listing for Hugo (2011) ... distributed in 1920 x 1080!!!

Thanks Eric ... I had in my mind that there was a much larger difference between "2k cinema standard" and 1080p (when it's really lineball) ... and that perhaps an enormous amount of the Alexa image quality on Hugo was being thrown away. (Ironically that database doesn't specify the Alexa model or aquisition resolution so maybe it's not incredibly helpful in this instance).

When checking some figures on theatre resolution in general, I also came across an unsourced observation that, when viewed at 1.5 x the screen width, people can only discern about 1 million pixels or roughly 720p.

All in all, it makes me feel a tad better about only owning a hacked GH2 ... -_-
