Kodak stopped making Kodachrome film last year. The last facility to process the film in the world will process the last roll today because they have run out of the chemicals. I would not know about this story except for a tweet by David Pogue here.

This was the film that recorded many moments of my family's life growing up. My father shot Kodachrome slides mostly with a Kodak 35mm camera and we spent many evenings looking at them being projected in a darkened room. He used Kodachrome all of his adult life. With my father's great skill at correctly guessing exposures it captured many fond memories. His camera did not have a light meter. He used his eye and many years of experience.

RIP Kodachrome.
