Are XD movie screenings worthwhile?

I would like to see Mockingjay Part 2 today. The nearby theater is playing it in standard format. A slightly farther-away theater is playing it in XD with Auro sound for twice the price. I have never been to farther-away theater, and a few online reviews of the theater say that the Auro sound system isn't great. I am concerned that the surround-sound may make it seem like the audio is not matching the video, which is a pet peeve, something I've noticed with in-home older surround-sound systems, and something that makes it impossible for me to concentrate on a film, but I have no idea if that's a valid concern. Is it a valid concern? Is XD worth twice as much as standard format? (I don't really understand what "XD" is -- is it just high-definition? -- so feel free to explain that to me, too.) [more inside]
