You can get film at B&H. I'd recommend you start with Tri-X. It's cheap. If you dig up a projector, you can project it. Kodak just killed Ektachrome, so it's your only cheap reversal stock. Spectra does stock Velvia though.
I prefer getting it developed at Cinelab
It's very convenient for me. And it's a fantastic lab.
If you shoot color, don't use the built in filters if you can. Get a screw in color correcting filter for the film. If you shoot black and white, B&W filter rules apply.
Oh, forget about sound in camera. Kodak stopped making Super 8 sound film years ago. Your cameras have sound gear, but you can't use it. It will all be silent.
