Dewaynes- got my Kodachrome from them recently
Blue Moon- They sell 110 film
Frugal Photographer- The sell 110 film and 127 film as well as a few other things.

However, BH carries several film sizes for vintage cameras as well. I usually get 35mm and 120 locally.

Used and New Cameras and Equipment for Sale: Blue Moon Camera Inventory

Bluefire Products in the Frugal Photographer catalog

Black and white film processing/developing and printing - Dwayne's Photo Service - Parsons, Kansas

Edit Edit: I left out Central Camera. They carry film including vintage. However, their prices are generally higher than the above.

My friendly local camera shop has a good selection of 35mm. Beyond that there are a multitude of sources on the Web that cater to film photographers. I buy from Adorama for convenience sake...they reliably ship fast. Freestyle (as noted above) is a good source. I would also check out DigitalTruth ( They have a good selection of films and darkroom supplies as well as good reference materials.

For the new unexpired film I have started buying bulk rolls, and try to hit the local stores here first - I don't mind paying a couple extra bucks for a friendly face and personal service and pointers. If they don't have what I am looking for, then I do the mail order thing.

I have used these guys and they are indeed pretty knowledgeable. The guy was more than happy to take the time and answer questions for me.
