    Probably Kodak already knows this, and that might be why they contracted with Hollywood to supply motion picture film only through 2015.

    At which point all Kodak color film may cease production, I dont know if Kodak can keep coating film without motion picture film. A lot of small towns are going to lose their theaters as the owners may have trouble affording digital projectors. And I wounder about 2nd and 3rd world markets.

    I think we are far from that point, it'll take more than two years to change an old reliable standard worldwide. But in a longer perspective, yes, it wont last forever.

    As I understand it, film is still required to archive digital movies, as the studios recognise this is a prudent course. Also there are various institutions using film to archive films originally made on nitrate stock, so presumably movie film, both colour & black & white, is still going to be needed for all this activity?

    Yes, the problem, as outlined in other threads, is whether this small amount of film coating will be enough to sustain film production especially at Kodak where film coating machines only coat film IIRC. Fujifilm uses the same machines to coat film and paper and that makes the issue less bad.

    Archiving requires only a few copies for each movie. The entire analogue movie production requires a lot of film for the capture (which is much more than what if mounted in the final cut), and especially a lot of film for the duplication of the many hundreds of copies which are required for the distribution to analogue movie theatres. If you export the film and this has to be translated in another language (or needs superimposition of subtitles) you have to make new copies for each market. In the old days, there would also be some conversion into 16mm movie to rent for home theatre projections or similar.

    The advent of digital movie theatres risks to reduce film consumption to maybe the capture phase, and then maybe the backup copy phase, which is much less film produced and consumed than what used to be.
