The Irishman - I have been watching this off and on as well. The aging thing is really a distraction. As Keith said, you have these old guys trying to act young and it just looks odd. I also find the exact opposite true. When you see Frank (De Niro) in the nursing home, he walks and talks like he's much younger than he looks. You would expect someone of his characters advanced age to move and talk a lot slower.

As for it being in movie theaters I believe that is so the film will be eligible for Oscar nominations.
