Since you're not in LA it'll be a bit more expensive, unless you can cut a good deal.

But it depends on whether you're getting just a one light pass or a supervised one. The lab here in SF charges roughly $400 per hour session, and I spent that long once just transferring 400' of film because I was doing various tests which required a lot of correction.

Only 100', probably about $.30 a foot unsupervised = $30. Most likely about $100 total should you choose to supervise the transfer.
