I find it hard to understand how refreshing the picture twice as fast can reduce film grain though. That grain is an artifact of film and is supposed to be there (I know a lot of digital remasters try to clean it up, however I find that philosophy somewhat misguided). But as for reducing strobe/flicker and motion blur, sure why not.
I don't know that shooting 48fps is that high tech per say... though obviously you double the amount of film that you shoot, and need projectors that can project the film twice as fast. Then I imagine you drop every other frame to create 'standard' 24fps prints for those theaters that can only project film at the normal speed.
There is a Sony 3D monitor (you don't have to play anything in 3D) which has (as a prerequisite) a 240Hz refresh rate. I believe it is 24 inches. It has two HDMI and 1 component port. You can hook your cable box up to it if it has an HDMI out. It goes for $399.00
