Although, there nothing to stop people using 16mm even now, it's just not the best option if you're putting the time and money into making a feature film. However, I expect there are people out there now shooting their low budget feature on 16mm using Arri 16 BLs or Eclair NPRs.

I have heard that some commercial movies are shot in super-16 so as to get film copies 1.66 or 1.85. Does anyone know anything about that? Is 16 mm ever used for shooting movie theater films?
Here are a few that use Super16 to check out (in no particular order--just films that come to mind):
The Wrestler (in theaters now in the US)
Leaving Las Vegas
The Queen (the scenes focusing on Tony Blair)
Babel (scenes in Morocco)
The Station Agent
City of God
The Constant Gardener
