Film for everybody is dead.
Everybody doesn't want film. Those of us that do are more than happy to use pro labs (which most of us would be doing anyway, I'm sure), or do it ourselves, or use mail order processing. If you're in an urban area, local processing of any sort should not be an issue, it's just a matter of finding out which lab to use (I use Duggal and CRC in new york city for my lab work.)
The fact that there are "no" mini labs doesn't trouble me, because I wouldn't be bringing my film to them in the first place.
