All,
is it true that Walmart still accepts super 8mm for processing? Is it still under 5.00? Do they accept any film? Is there something special I need to do to get them to take my super 8?
Thanks,
Brian

I don't think Walmart actually does the processing. You can drop it off there, but I BELIEVE they send it to "Dwayne's" in Kansas. I think that's the only lab in the US the processes Kodachrome. If that's not what you meant, then sorry, and nevermind.

Anyone wanna back me up? Or call me an incorrect ass?

That is correct. Most Wal-Farts will take the Super8 and send it to Dwayne's in Parsons, Kansas. You might want to check with the department however, because I've heard that there are some Wal-Farts that don't do it. I think it'll run you about $4.88. That's just what I've heard. but I wouldn't know for absolute sure because I don't support Wal-Fart in any way. I'd rather give Dwayne's more money than give one red cent to Wal-Fart. but this is a discussion about Super8 film, so my Wal-Mart bashing is done.

On the envelope there is a space called "special instructions." You want to write "super8 movie film - process k14"

The person behind the counter may not know anything about it. If you ask about movie film they might think you want a transfer. Just drop it in the bin. In a week or two the film will be ready. I've never had a problem.
