Photo Gear, I also recall those years with tears in my eyes....but film is probably not going anywhere so soon, at least the BW stuff.
Here, in Europe, is encouraging that small companies like Adox, or even Efke or Foma are still doing well (it's not a multi-million business anymore, but it's still a breadbasket for many people)
I have heard from my relatives from Toronto that you can hardly get film to buy there (in a regular shop)....strange enough for a multi-million city....
