Can anyone here make a recommendation for a commercial processor for 16mm B&W reversal? Location and point of contact if possible. I need a reliable company, preferably one that makes daily processing runs in this kind of film. It's only one 100-ft roll, but it's an important one. I'm located in Nebraska. Close by is good, but not essential. Thanks.

They aren't near Nebraska per se (most movie labs aren't :-P) but you could use Cinelab. I don't know if anyone is doing B&W reversal daily anymore. It's probably too low volume for that, only used by students, instead of the entire TV news industry and every football team in the nation. . .

Here's their rate page http://www.cinelab.com/16mm.html

Shipping might be a pain these days. I think that B&W film Factory in Toronto runs B&W reversal fairly often,

I use BPS Photo Lab in Batavia, IL. Their processing has always been clean and scratch-free, and I think they do B&W reversal fairly often. It's also probably the closest cine lab to you. Their phone number is 630-879-8200.
