    Developing old "C-41a" Disc film

    I came upon an old disc camera this afternoon, loaded with disk film (14 of 15 shots finished); the film is from the mid 1980s, I'm guessing. It is marked "process c-41a"

    My local lab does not proces disk film (and WILL NOT run old stuff), and I do not have C-41 chems, and do not intend to purchase them for 1 disc of film

    Is there a way to process this in standard B&W chemistry (D-76 or Rodinol)?

    You don't give a location...

    In the UK http://www.photosupplies.co.uk/processing.html will handle it.

    I'm in the US, so i'd prefer not to have to send it out to the UK ...

    I'm sort of looking for a way to home process it, though thank you for hte link, as that may be useful for other films...

    Most color films can be processed in B&W chemistry, yielding B&W negatives with an orange color mask. I don't have times handy, but a Web search might turn something up.

    Alternatively, try Rocky Mountain Film Laboratory. They handle all sorts of odd and old films, including disc film. I've never used their services, but I've heard good things about them.
