Any ideas of how much 90 min. worth of stock would cost after all is said and done?

You don't need a DI or sound neg, it's ideal for single prints and the print quality is good.
Nordisk film post production have one in Oslo. http://www.filmteknikk.no/
By the time you buy 35mm neg stock and get a print made plus a sound neg, there mightn't be a much of a cost difference.

Any ideas what 90 min. worth of 35mm film would cost including processing and all it's needed for a print for projection? Thinking about doing a cheap HDV to 35mm transfer using a huge LCD/Plasma screen. Probably use a Konvas for the job. Maybe one of the older ARRIs with PL mount.
I'd suggest getting a professional lab film-out using a laser or CRT recorder, rather than try to do it yourself. You will get an image, but the tone and color scale will be quite distorted, unless you have developed a really sophisticated LUT and signal processing for filming an LCD or plasma monitor.

Any ideas of Cinevator rates? That site is all in foreign language and has no prices. I did a little quick research and some people are saying the final results are soft. How does it compare to Arri laser? I know Arri laser is very expensive, but it's the best and a good reference.
From HDCAM it looks about the same sharpness as a S16mm blow up to 35mm without the grain. Not as good as the best systems, but it looks filmic, rather than video looking.
I'd sent them an e-mail and ask them for a quote. Ask if they'll run a short test for you.
