Among the handful (a relative term) of dedicated film photography users, this is somewhat common knowledge that the end was in sight.  The official date has been the subject of much speculation at http://www.apug.org  Also a subject of speculation is how much stock is left in the master rolls and how long it will last.

Over the last few years, the various Kodachrome processing facilities for still and motion picture processing have been closed leaving Dwayne's Photographic (http://www.dwaynesphoto.com/) the sole provider of Kodachrome processing.

Looking at wikipedia it seems the 35mm kodachrome has been gone for a
couple of years already and they are finally getting rid 135mm variant.

35mm film

That's OK.  On a related note, the 120 size has been unavailable for some time now as was the 4x5 stock.  Not sure if there was ever an 8x10 size available in Kodachrome.  Bigger sizes are often on a different substrait and in some cases they just couldn't get the emulsions to work the same (TechPan is a good example, only available in the small roll film sizes).
