Does Kodak, or anyone else, still process any of their old color reversal stocks?

Thanks

Rocky mountain labs, among others, do some of the obsolete processes. I sent them an Ektachrome 160G a few years ago. It's anything from about $20 a go IIRC. It can take months while they wait for enough film to do a run. Frank Bruinsma's Dutch lab http://www.super8.nl...ish/e_index.htm also does.

What processes are you wanting to run? Some Like VNF are technicaly obsolete but several labs still run them, older ones Like K-12 are likly harder to come by.

E-6 is the current process most reversal labs run, some still run VNF-1. KODACHROME film is still processed by Kodak in Switzerland, and Dwayne's Photo in Parsons, Kansas, but Kodak is discontinuing the Super-8 KODACHROME process at its lab as of August 1.

Specialty labs like Rocky Mountain Film Lab run older processes like E-4 and ME-4. Remember, film that old likely will have some age issues.

Really old KODACHROME film for process K-12 cannot be processed as color, as the chemicals are no longer made. You can recover any images by processing as a B&W negative, as Rocky Mountain Film Lab does:
