Kodachrome Film Era Comes to an End

Thursday, December 30, 2010

After 75 years, the era of processing Kodak's iconic color film will come to an end. Only one Kodachrome processing machine in the world remains in public use, and by the close of business today, it will be shut down for the final time. Though not without a mad rush in the last months from photographers around the world who wanted their last rolls developed. The machine sits in Dwayne’s Photo, a family-run business located in Parsons, Kansas. We talk with the store's general manager, Grant Steinly, about the end of the Kodachrome era.
