Probably I can help:

Building 38 is the other big film coating machine (the more modern one due to R. Shanebrook).
So, most probably we as film photographers are not affected by closing of "14 Room".
Relax, don't waste your time in another superfluous doom and gloom thread, go out shootig film and have fun .
By the way, all other film manufacturers (except Agfa-Gevaert and Fuji) all have had only one coating machine for decades. And they are coating different products on their machine, not only films, but also RC and FB paper, inkjet and other products (e.g. look at the product portfolio of InovisCoat, they are running the former Agfa Leverkusen film coating machine).
Interestingly now Agfa-Gevaert is running more coating machines than Kodak (last year there was an official announcement from them that tey are coating more than 1 million mē every day, lots of different film products including PCB films).
