Although not Kodak Alaris-related, this article in yesterday's Wall Street Journal


indicates that Rochester film manufacturing will probably get a reprieve for several years (it's not finalized yet). If that happens and Kodak Alaris elects to continue purchasing/reselling still film, the end will have been delayed.

Interesting to note that the article says closure of Bldg. 38 had been under serious consideration unless the studios stepped in to provide Kodak film with some financial life support. Those same studios declined to invest in Bldg. 38 directly.
