Don't bother asking your momma not to take your Kodachrome away. The film geek's beloved Kodachrome Super 8 film has expired but there will be one last hurrah (okay, two) in Los Angeles this week. First, the 10th Annual Attack of the 50 Foot Reels where daredevil crews will shoot a film under almost dogmatic rules; one roll of film per crew; in-camera edits only and no viewing of the finished product until the night of the screening. Second, guests will gather for one last glorious night at RIP Kodachrome: A Wake Screening, complete with film and slide screenings, eulogies, music and a pot luck. I'd say Kodachrome is being sent off in a grand fashion.
