They took my Kodachrome away!!

The last place to have Kodachrome developed is no longer accepting any more film.  Dwayne's Photo Shop in Parsons Kansas developed the last roll on Dec. 30, 2010.  Kodak no longer produces the chemicals so this is the end.  See this article from the KOAM TV in Kansas:

Updated December 30, 2010 at 4:55 PM CST by ANGELA GREENWOOD:  The end of the year brings the end of what many say is the best slide and movie film in history.
The world's last standing Kodachrome film developer is located in Parsons, Kansas, and on Thursday, they stopped taking the film.
According to Dwayne's Photo Shop in Parsons, most people have never heard of Kodachrome film.  But the unique film is bringing attention to Parsons.
Large crowds of people from across the region and the world came to Dwayne's Photo Shop on Thursday to take advantage of the absolute last chance to have their now obsolete Kodachrome film developed.

I hope no one has any left over rolls you meant have developed because it's too late now.  I hope I don't have any.  I still have some print film to develop.  I guess I better get it done.  Everything I do now is digital but I still have my film cameras and one day I plan to shot some more film.  I really do.
