David.
Call Panda Labs in Seattle.  They're about one block north of the Space Needle 
entry to Seattle Center.

They specialize in B&W but also have CC41 and a C41 machine they bought when 
another local went out of business.

They're small, quirky and for me at least, did really nice work.  Most of the 
local pros I know speak well of them.  Last of a dying breed, for sure.

I know they do a lot of mail-in; once saw FedEx guy bring in a big plastic bag. 
 It contained 65 exposed rolls of B&W from a wedding shoot in Denver.

533 Warren Avenue North 
Seattle, WA 98109-4527
(206) 285-7091

Cheers
